“Anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.”

Matthew 10:37-42

How do we understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus? It’s not a hat that we put on and take off. Instead, it is an essential aspect of our Christian lives. And therefore, it shapes and gives meaning to all the different aspects of our life.

In the Gospel, Jesus reminds his disciples that anyone who loses his life for his sake will find it. In other words, everyone who loves and serves and goes out of their way for another does not go unnoticed by God. God sees our every action, gesture, even those hidden from the eyes of others.

In which ways is Jesus calling us to serve him today? Let’s not be afraid to lose our lives for love today.
