He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life
God is not saying for us to hate our life. He is saying for us to hate the old sin nature that once ruled us. This sin nature looks to the world for its security, identity, comfort, and pleasure. This sin nature is self-centered and envious of others. This sin nature is always thinking about self. It never puts others first. If you love your old sin nature and yield to it you will lose your life. The wisdom that controls your mind will be deceived. You will justify your sin and blame others for your shortcomings. You lose your life by allowing Jesus to live through you. Jesus is Love. He always loves. He always prefers others above Himself. He is always a servant to others. We are transformed from our old sin nature to our new nature of love by allowing Jesus to live through us. This process of transformation is called sanctification. God’s word washes all the filth from our hearts and minds. His word is what transforms our thinking. When we allow God’s redemptive truth to rule our hearts we will find life and health. We will find life and life more abundantly. I encourage you to lose your life. Do not demand your own way. Make yourself a servant to all. If you will make yourself last God will make you first. If you will humble yourself God will exalt you. Love is the answer to life. Allow God to mold you into a vessel of love so that you can be useful to the Master, sanctified and prepared for every good work.
