A very good message from Pastor Jeske.
It’s easy for us to fall in love with our lives here on earth. We get caught up in everyday life, friends, and family and forget about our God. But Jesus says we need to lose our lives to save them. What that means is that we live our lives with God’s agenda in mind, not our own. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t enjoy our lives but we aren’t to be in love with our them so much that we forget to keep our focus heavenward.
