Denying Self Is The First Step

Matthew 16:24

The Jesus said to his disciples, If anyone want to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.

I would be betting woman and say everyone of us would say that we desire to take us our cross and follow Him but how can we take up our cross if we haven’t gotten past the first step.   

You see the first step is denying self. Seems so simple yet so profound. 

I can’t reach the world if self is at the core and self centeredness of my character. 

First things first!  Deny Self
