.Jesus didn't die on the cross to fill your pockets with money, nor did he die to provide you with all the riches of the world so that you live like the world, nor did he die to give you the best life.
He died for you to have life after death. He died so that you take up the cross, deny yourself, walk behind him, live for him, and die for him.
“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
Matthew 16: 24-26
Jesus’ purpose was not only to be the atoning sacrifice for people’s sins. He wanted disciples, those who follow Him. We can’t follow Him to the death on the cross on Calvary, but we can take up our cross daily!
