There’s one area where the me centric approach just won’t work, and that’s with Jesus.


What if the best you, has to do with less of you than ever before?


Luke 9:18–20

18 Now it happened that as he [Jesus] was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” 20 Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”…


We can get lost in what everyone else says about Jesus, we can get enamored with what others say about Jesus, but what truly matters is “Who do you say that Jesus is?


Luke 9:22–23

22 …“The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.” 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.


Jesus is calling us to deny anything that gets in the way of following Him.


The greatest thing you can do for you, that has nothing to do with you, is tapping out to self and surrendering to Jesus. 


John 3:30

30 He must increase, but I must decrease.


Galatians 2:20

20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
