Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.

Matthew 16:24-26


  • God’s desire is for us to become like Him

  • Whoever wants to follow Christ must follow by the way of the cross

  • God is inviting us to be disciples of Jesus so that we can live out our calling to be a blessing to the world

  • Our desire for God should come not out of obligation but out of love

  • Do we have the desire to be like Christ?


  • Desiring to follow God requires sacrifice

  • If we are determined to follow God, all our actions have to align to it

  • The cost of following God is to leave some things behind

  • It calls for us to dare to dream and to submit that dream to God


  • In pursuing God, we will face difficulties and disappointments.

  • We have to put our trust in God that He will never forsake us even though it is hard to see the end result.

  • We need to have a determination in our heart to trust that God is doing His work

  • This determination is not of our own will but it comes when we exchange our weakness for His strength

  • It is the grace of God that sustains us and helps us to take the next step


  • It is God that fulfills the calling in our lives

  • We have to let go of our lives for His sake

  • Only when we submit our lives to Him, that we will find it in Him

  • We will be fulfilled by God only if we seek Him with all our heart.

  • We will never be lacking or lost

  • It is in the letting go of our lives and receiving His calling for us that we come to a place of finding rest in God

  • Reward of following Jesus Christ is joy
