“Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?”
Our 🎶🎶 for today is the ancient (300s!) “Of the Father’s Love Begotten,” “What a Beautiful Name” by Hillsong and “I Need You Lord” by me :).
Our 📖📖 are from Psalms 69 and 73, Ecclesiastes 11:9-12:14, Galatians 5:25-6:10 and Matthew 16:21-28.
