Give Yourself Away
“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.” (Mark 8.35 NLT)
Instead of giving up something for Lent, let’s give ourselves away!
Because we are created in the image of God, our happiness does not come from status, salary, sex, or success. True happiness and fulfillment come from serving others. God designed you to be happiest when you are giving your life away. Why? Because he wants you to become like him.
Matthew 20:28 says, “Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (NLT). Jesus came to serve and give. Those two things will bring more happiness in your life than anything else, and they define what it means to follow Jesus. If you’re not serving, you’re not giving, and you’re not following Jesus. It’s just that simple.
We give ourselves away because Jesus gave himself away for us, but often we don’t know how to begin.
