WFS Expository Thoughts: Michaelmas

Self-denial is a difficult, but a godly thing. Better to lose something and keep God, Jesus says, than to keep something and lose God. Yet we live in a self-indulgent time. Nothing, it seems, should stand in the way of what I want. But what are the things of this life in comparison with the things to come? What could we gain in the world which will not pass away? Deny yourselves, Christians, and take up your cross, as painful as it might be, and the angels will rejoice when you lay it down in heaven. Matthew 18:1-11
