Dying to Self

die to self“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

In Lent, Christians prepare for Easter by reflecting on Jesus’ journey to the cross and its meaning for our lives.  A part of this journey is hearing anew Jesus’ call to die to ways that we are self-centered and unloving.  Scripture tells us that unless we die to self, we cannot be “born again” or find new life in Christ.  Watch this four-minute video of Diana Butler Bass describing this journey in her own life.  (Unfortunately, this video will not play on mobile devices.)
