Is Jesus’ Most Frequent Saying Your Most Frequent Thought?

WLO_searchingscripturesYou do know what Jesus’ most frequent saying is…right?

It’s one of the few that’s recorded in all four gospels. In one of the gospels, it’s even required twice.

Matthew 10:39–“Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”

Matthew 16:25–“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.”

Mark 8:35–“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.”

Luke 9:24–“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.”

John 12:25–“Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”

Do you love your life today? Are you seeking your life today? Are you seeking to save your life today? Have you found your life today? Are you on a collision course today to lose your life for Christ?

If Jesus is quoted as saying this more frequently than any other saying, are you thinking about these questions often enough? Would anyone (including yourself) deduce from your life that this is the question Jesus most frequently put to his followers?
