Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Living for what really matters (Biblical Values)
The resulting problem: A life with “Switched Price Tags”. (Luke 9:24-25)
It often seems like the world encourages us to “look after number one”. “It’s all about me and my happiness”—the theme we are encouraged to perpetuate. This passage gives a different insight. Living a self-interest life now could well mean losing life eternal. Dying to self (losing your life and living for Jesus) means finding life eternal. A value often contrary to that of the world we live in.
