The Greatest Hits #4 Luke 9:23-24



“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:23-24
 
The goal of your faith is to end up crucified
 
What is a cross?  
 
A cross is voluntary
 
Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23
 
A cross is a voluntary sacrifice
 
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1
 
A cross is a voluntary sacrifice that hurts
 
So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather,
join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. 2 Timothy 2:8
 
A cross is a voluntary sacrifice that hurts and leads people to God
 
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. 1 Peter 3:18
 
Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:38

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
