Lose your life

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
      
         Those who would save their life will lose it.
         Those who will lose their life for my sake
         and for the gospel will save it.

                  —Mark 8.35

If you fear your life is your flesh
         you will die.
If you trust your life is love
         you will be given life.

Life small enough to cling to
          is small indeed.
Life given away in love
         is infinite.

To be truly alive
         is to love.
All else is death.
         Why even try
         for anything else?

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
