IC365 Day 194: Losing

Home/Writing Projects/IC365/IC365 Day 194: Losing

“If you would prove your love, do your worst. Instead of winning to honor me with your high reputation, I want you to act against your normal character and do badly. Lose. Losing is a much keener test of your love. Losing would contradict your self-love. And losing would show your obedience to your lover and not to yourself!”
Jocelyn (Shannyn Sossamon)
A Knight’s Tale (2001)

To prove His love and show His obedience to His Father, Jesus lived a life of losing. He took the lowest place possible. He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death. This was His way of life. So, when He says that anyone who wishes to come after Him must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Him – essentially lose, He speaks from experience. And in Christ, He gives us His own life by which to live. In Christ, we can live a life of losing for Him.
