A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, September 6

Luke 9:24

"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it."

These words hold meaning on different levels. Jesus is speaking to his disciples, and his message to them is more immediate and concrete. But to those of us who follow Jesus, many centuries later, the message is more subtle, but still vitally important. To follow Jesus, there are sacrifices I need to be willing to make. To serve others in Jesus' name, to worship with my church family, to meet with fellow believers, to study scripture--all require a small sacrifice of my place in this world. The more of the world I can give up for Jesus, the better.

Holy Lord, help me to see sacrifices I can make for you. I am here because you created me. Lead me, Lord. Amen
