Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26, KJV)
We must starve our sins until whatever sin we are struggling with until it is dead to us and is longer apart us. We must replace our sins with daily Christian living with reading the Word and prayer and fellow-shipping with those that will lift us up to help us to carry our burdens. Amen.
