What do these people have in common? They're all WINNERS! We all love WINNERS, don’t we?

Can we think of any famous LOSERS? Of course not! But who are God's winners and losers?

According to the Bible, a real WINNER is someone who is willing to LOSE themselves in service to God and man. (cf. Matthew 20:25-28)

The one who loses his or her pride, stubbornness, independence, self-reliance, selfishness, self-centeredness and gives up to God will WIN! (cf. I Corinthians 9:23-27 and Philippians 1:21 & 3:4-9)

If you really want to WIN in this life, you have to LOSE your life to find it. Whoever loses his life will gain eternal life. LOSE the idea that you can make it on your own. LOSE your pride and your arrogance and give your life totally to God. Like Christ, team up with the broken, humble, homeless and lost – then empty yourself with He who emptied himself. He left heaven and became poor for our sakes. Now He asks us to go and do the same.
