You may read the title of this post and be incredibly confused. You may have no idea what I am talking about. You may already think I’m crazy saying that living is dying and dying is living. However, there is no reason to worry… I will explain.
In Luke chapter 9 of the Bible, scripture states that if anyone wants to be a follower of Christ, they must deny themselves, take up their cross daily and follow Him. This may sound simple and easy to say, but in reality this is quite a difficult concept to comprehend and master. Denying yourself does not simply mean to refuse but to completely die to your earthly desires. It means dropping everything you have in order to follow Christ and give Him the glory that He deserves. In dying to ourselves and following Christ in everything we do, we are promised eternal life in heaven.
For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
