"He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." Mathew 10:39
IN JESUS TODAY!
What is life that we should find it or lose it? Life is more than food and clothing, therefore we shouldn't make such an "ado" about these things, as it is written, "And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, neither for the body, what ye shall put on, the life is more than meat and the body more than raiment." Luke 12:22,23 More than this, Life is more, when we lose our concern for things that matter little, we can gain focus on things that matter much, such as Jesus which matters the most of all. For this reason we can say that if we lose our life or concern for life in this world, we will gain our life or our focus and concern for our life in Jesus!It is in Jesus that we have life, as it is written, Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the post of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain the favor of the Lord." Proverbs 8:34,35 See here how our focus and concern must be upon hearing Jesus, watching for Jesus daily, and waiting for his return. When we lose our concern for the things of this world we are free to concentrate on the important things such as the matter of Eternal Life with Jesus our Lord.
Losing our worldly focus and our worldly life, we then gain our heavenly focus and eternal concern for all that Jesus is. This is true life! A life in JESUS! Let's be Focused On Jesus Christ Our Lord!
