On Denial, Giving Up and Material Things

Stop by A Look at The Book where you’ll find this post and the rest of my series through the book of Mark.

Mark 8:34-37

And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

    I think this is one of the never-ending battles…sacrifice of self. Thanks so much for your open honesty, and for linking this up with me this week.

    I run into your blog constantly! I love it. I completely understand the financial thing – my husband and I took out horrific amounts of student loans. It was a really unwise decision that we have spent years paying on and will continue on in for years. It makes me sick to think of all the money that could have been spent on God’s kingdom. It’s very difficult to let go of that regret and simply live TODAY making wise decisions with our money. It’s so hard, even we I think we have moved on….. I would love to follow you on twitter or facebook. Am I missing it?

    Bless your heart, I think we’ve all been there in one way or another. Thankfully God is faithful to use us where we are and you may be surprised at the times and means He has used in your life to touch someone else for Him. Take heart and go forward wiser and humbled :-)
