Denying Self is a Good Choice

Do you find it easier to tell someone else “no” than it is to tell yourself “no”? Sometimes we desire things that we know are bad for us. We may desire to escape the stress and pressures of life, but we also know that habit forming pills, drugs, and alcohol would be bad for us, even though sometimes we may want them very badly. Although it may not appeal to the pleasure seeking masses, the message for those who would choose to be a disciple of Jesus Christ emphasizes self denial. We abstain fro the sake of our own soul, for the sake of those who are watching us, and for the sake of the glory of God. It is good to choose to deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow Jesus. Please pause and take a few minutes to pray and commit your desires to the Lord before you begin listening to the sermon today.
