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

Matthew 16:24-28

Where are we going? What is our end goal in life? These are questions we would do well to reflect on regularly. As disciples of Jesus, we know where we are going and our end goal. Our end goal is to be with God forever. Therefore, everything we do here on earth, how we live, and our choices are to reach this end.

However, we know that the world is strong, and we can lose our focus and deviate from the path of Jesus. This is why Jesus encourages us to persevere because the wealth and honour of this present life is nothing compared to what we will receive in the eternal life.

So let us not be afraid to lose our life for the sake of the kingdom.
