On New Year’s Eve, we concluded our “Finding Peace in an Anxious World” series. Tyler emphasized the significance of self-denial over self-fulfillment.
Many of us are trapped in the pursuit of worldly self-fulfillment, but Jesus calls us to deny ourselves and follow Him. God’s way is the best, and without it, our lives will be incomplete. It’s extraordinary to entrust yourself into the hands of God, who created us, knows us better than ourselves, loves us more than we love ourselves, and wants to guide us toward freedom and prosperity. However, we must let go of our old ways of living to experience this new life, which starts with baptism.
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. – Romans 6:4
