1/25/2021 – Die to Live

Matthew 16:25 - For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
 
Take up your cross and follow Christ alone;
Be willing then to suffer, even die,
For nothing less than this will strike the tone;
To die to self and bid your life goodbye.
Bring only faith and love upon the hill;
Be crucified with Jesus: die to live!
Just leave the old self there, with it your will;
He gave His all that all your sins forgive.
If you hang on to anything that’s flesh
You cannot follow Jesus to the cross.
The flesh is doomed to die; it can’t refresh,
And all you gain in this life count as loss.
            I beg you, lose your life, surrender all;
            Forsake it all for His sake – Heed the call!
