NOT SO SURE THINGS…
AND THE ABILITY TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE
Text: 24Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone would come after
me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25For
whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life
for me will find it. 26What good will it do for a man if he gains the
whole world, yet forfeits his own soul? Or what can a man give in
exchange for his soul?” Matt 16:24-26 NIV
