Together in Faith: “Those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life? Matthew 16:25-26
Perhaps the key words here are “for my sake.” We are invited by Jesus to do what Jesus himself did, to love God and love our neighbor as we love ourselves, and then to act accordingly. Loving God, neighbor and self seems to be the way of salvation.
