Finding Ourselves

This from the sermon preparation cutting room floor:
In Matthew 16:25, Jesus says, “...whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” In other words, the only way for us to find our true selves is not by going on a quest of self-discovery, but by giving our whole lives to Christ and live the life that only God can give us!

We're encouraged to find ourselves by looking deep and being true to our personal dreams and desires. It's not that that's entirely wrong, but it misses out on what God can teach us about both ourselves and Him as we pour ourselves into Him. To ignore the insights of the one who created us leads us into all sorts of foolishness.
