The LIFE and CROSS of Christian Living in the Bible

What does “Life” meant by Jesus?

In the below quoted verses Jesus explains it as:

“If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.…  Luke 9:23

Jesus describes two kinds of Life  in the bible ie;

  • Our natural personality in day-to-day life
  • Inner Spirit Man Personality

How do you say that?

Ok, what I mean here is the “Whoever save his Life will lose it” means the life or the personality we can control like our life style, career, eating habits, greed, truthfulness etc this is the only possible life that is in our power to save or handle. And obviously this is an illusion for we may not have much control over it in reality.

And the “whoever loses his Life for my sake will save it” Here when  you carefully  see, it describes the spiritual personality life of every individual which was dead due to Adams sin and revived by the sacrifice of Jesus the Christ.

So when you control our natural personality’s desires when it comes with the development of your spiritual personality. Even though you lose or sacrifice some of your natural desires to grow your spiritual personality, you save the real spirit man rather than saving the other one.

So What’s the point :

God created us “Human” as Body, Mind and Spirit through the source of Life that is “Jesus, the first born Son and the source of entire creation” but we sinned and our spirit fallen dead and Jesus’ sacrifice revived our dead spirit and its like a baby when you accept Christ. In order to strengthen our spirit man to grow as an elder person we  individuals have to control or sacrifice our natural or mental desires.

And the word “For My sake” again represent Jesus as the source of Spirit or Life or like our desire to grow in spiritual Life

Now, the sacrifice could vary or depends on each individual’s nature of life he lives. This is the Cross mentioned by Christ. When you discipline your mind, body and commit yourself in understanding God’s plan for your life. That’s it, you are becoming the Light of this World and will Arise and Shine on behalf of Jesus the Christ like the Lighthouse at the beach helping thousands of sailors to travel in Peace. Peace means “in aligned with the thought of God”.

I believe this is the real meaning of saving our Life or Christian Living according to Jesus preached in the Bible
