Look for Christ

Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.”

One thought on “Look for Christ

  1. Reblogged this on Using God's Word in Everyday Life and commented:
    What good is it to gain the whole world and lose your soul. The things that we have in this world are just a shadow of the good things that God has in store for us. However, in order for us to receive these things, we must first let go of the shadow. This will be a scary concept, but if we truly trust in God and that He has our best intentions in mind, then we will do it.
