Readings:
Galatians 2:16-21 (KJV)
Gospel Lesson: Matthew 16:21-26

One of the hardest things for a young pastor fresh out of seminary, armed with his knowledge, skills and talents and a rather high estimate of himself, to realize is that this “thing” called ministry, in fact, this “thing” called Christianity, is not about him. While this realization may be more relevant for pastors, it is really true for everyone. Jesus makes it clear, if you are not willing to get out of the way, to die as far as self is concerned, you will never find life. Only in losing our lives do we find life in Christ. The Christian faith is not about “me and Jesus.” It is about “me OR Jesus!”
