Are you trying to hold onto your life? We cling so tightly to who we are, or who we think we are, that we resist the Lord's efforts to change us into who He wants us to become. We're afraid to lose ourselves. We're afraid to trust Him to give us something much better. Yet this is the only way. Do we want to be His disciples? Then, complete with all the challenges and the blessings and the promises of future rewards, we must allow Him to transform us completely. Only those who lose themselves to Him will find the gift of being remade in His image. Those who protect themselves from His work in their lives will lose everything in the end.
