Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." It means your life is not about you. - All of those are lies. He lets you love him for his flaws, imperfections and the broken pieces. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. - Jesus says that we are to deny ourselves and be willing to lose our life. The meaning may be expressed [this way]: He that is anxious to save his temporal [earthly] life, or his comfort and security here, shall lose eternal life, or shall fail [to enter] heaven. - We say that you have to follow your dreams. Christ teaches that he who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. It is the supreme example, but He calls all of us to follow Him. It’s also Jesus repeated a lot. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. He chooses his fear of losing you forever over his fear of being seen. We say that you have to love yourself first. Jesus said if we love anything more than Him, we are not worthy of Him (Matthew 10:37-38). 25For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose … He opens-up to you about his fears, weaknesses and childhood wounds. It is all about God and His purpose for you. The meaning may be expressed thus: He that is anxious to save his “temporal” life, or his comfort and security here, shall lose “eternal” life, or shall fail of heaven. If a guy is fighting with this purpose in mind, he wants to make things work. By David J. Stewart. In John 12:25, Jesus took this thought a step further when He said, "Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life." - This is radical. He lets you see him vulnerable especially in his most insecure moments. When a guy loves you, he lets you see all of him. He that is willing to risk or lose his comfort and “life” here for my sake, shall find “life” everlasting, or shall be saved. Matthew 16:25, “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” One of the most debated Scriptures today is Matthew 16:25, the phrase, “whosoever shall save his life shall lose it.” The Lordship Salvation crowd wrestles the true meaning of this Scripture, as they do other Scriptures to their own destruction. 24For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. Not loving the world extends to our own lives as well. He is not only speaking about Himself, but He is teaching us all that His example is just that -- an example for the rest of us. Even though you have the free will to choose to live your life freelyt, it becomes a lot easier with God in it. Jesus said, “Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.” From everything I’ve just shared with you, the meaning of the word “hate” in this passage should be now clear: it doesn’t mean “to detest”; rather, it means to “value to a lesser extent” . That said, if a man loves you and is emotionally invested in his relationship, he will initiate a “fight”, an argument rather, to avoid losing you; even if that means fighting with the woman he loves. Matthew 10:38-39 Becoming a follower of Jesus brings us to one of the greatest paradoxes that the world will ever know - the gospel is free and Jesus paid the ultimate price for all our sins with no catch, but to follow Jesus will cost you everything. We say that you have to listen to your heart. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life 'in this world', shall keep it until life eternal.
