Arthur Walkington Pink (1 April 1886 – 15 July 1952) was an English Christian evangelist and biblical scholar. He wrote many articles and books on the Christian faith.
The Christian life
“If anyone would come after Me, he must:
deny himself and
take up his cross daily and
follow Me.” Luke 9:23
The Christian life is a life that consists of following Jesus.
The first step toward a daily following of Christ, is the denying of self.
Many suppose they are followers of Christ, and yet ignore the path which He traveled. They imagine that may decline the unpleasant tasks of denying self and cross bearing–and yet enter Heaven when they die. What a delusion!
The one who disregards God’s commandments is not walking as Christ walked; instead, he is walking as the world walks.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand!” John 10:27-28
Today’s devotional challenges us to deny ourselves and follow Jesus. This is accomplished by obeying and following the commands of Jesus.
Meditate on these verses.
