The greatest paradox.
Denying oneself is not trending at all. The cross is a gift that brings out my real self. Seeing us w/ great love and w/ a great potential to change the world, Jesus challenges us to dare to die to a life of comfort that will not make us grow. Perhaps the greatest paradox this world has ever heard are the following words of Jesus, "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." Strange as it sounds, this is completely true.
