Dying Without Fear
“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.” Mark 8:35 (ESV)
When the selfless Spirit of God dwells in us we do not fear loss of our earthly life because eternity awaits. We may grieve the thought of leaving loved ones, but God will remain with them. We may think to resist threats to our life on behalf of the Kingdom of God, but by His strength we will gladly lay down our life rather than dishonoring the God we serve.
Let’s pray today that we may be in such close worship of Christ that we do not fear dying.
