In Luke 9.24 Jesus says to his followers that if they truly want to follow him they must, ‘Deny yourself, take up your cross daily and follow me.’

To deny yourself is to invite God into the driver’s seat of your life, trusting that He will make better decisions than you will. By reading your Bible and allowing that to shape the way you understand God’s kingdom, it becomes a daily passing over of the reins and asking God every morning, ‘How would you have me live this day?’

And then doing it. With love!
