Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon
Scripture: Mark 8:34-38
Christ has called all who wish to follow Him to abandon their lives and their living for His sake. That isn’t possible in today’s gospel of “self-esteem” and “self-love.” A life of sacrifice for the King cannot come from a heart that thinks too highly of itself, since that heart will think itself too valuable to give itself up. It will be a heart committed to self-preservation. Sadly, it is a high view of self that is propagated today to the destruction of souls and the church.
Add. Ref.: Mark 10:17-31; Psalm 141:5
