We talk a lot about resurrection. What about the death that must come first? Through story and biblical insight, Rick James reminds us that when Jesus tells us to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow him, he is describing a path of death, not a path to death.
Giving up our own plans in order to meet someone elses needs. Allowing God to shape our dreams, even as we lose a relationship, a job, a hoped-for future. Being alert to these daily opportunities to die to ourselves is how we discover that every act of dying, done in faith, leads to spiritual growth.
As we learn to embrace the little deaths of everyday existence, we lose our taste for lifeless religiosity. Our appetite for a thriving, vibrant life in Christ growsand our own experience motivates others to live out their extraordinary mission on earth. In truth, death is not an ending. It is the only way to experience abundant life.
Rick James is Publisher of CruPress, the publishing arm of Campus Crusade. He is a graduate of Syracuse University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and the author of numerous books, including Jesus Without Religion. He and his family live in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
