The Doorpost: How much do we love our lives?
Mike Miller · Aug 01, 2015
Believers in Jesus Christ can overcome satan and his angels. When we put our trust in Him, we have everything we need. But one thing can keep this from happening—loving our lives.
In Luke 9:24-25 Jesus says, “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?”
Today we have many opportunities to resist the forces of evil for the sake of our Lord. He shed His blood for us, He has worked in our lives, and He will enable us to overcome. We are more than conquerors, if we do not love our lives.
