Denying Ones Self (Matthew 16:24-26)Bruce Whitehead, February 17, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
You must give up yourself completely to God. A choice is made daily whether you will deny yourself and follow God. If you found yourself in the pits of hell you would give anything to not be there. The lost will have at least one opportunity to make a choice whether they will deny themselves and accept Jesus and His salvation. Those that are saved also have a choice whether they will deny themselves over Christ. If we want to be blessed of God then we MUST deny ourselves. The power of the church is leaving because we've let the flesh overtake us. It's a constant battle to overcome the flesh thru Christ. You money and other earthly possessions will ALL burn up in the end. The only thing that will stand is the work that has been done in His name. The flesh wants items in this world just because it's a lustful being. How often do you allow your tongue to ruin your witness or ruin denying yourself? It takes much discipline to walk in Christ's will. Do you find yourself wasting time for yourself during a free time?

24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (KJV)
