About Finding the New You Series
Revelation is given in the practical places. Every life experience is buried treasure for discovery of who God is and what Jesus has given: a whole, new YOU.
Mark 8:34 AMPC
If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself (forget, ignore, disown and lose sight of himself and his own interests)…
The Amplified Bible gives the correct sense of the word ‘deny.’ In the Greek language it also means separation. These are drastic and absolute words, meaning a complete severing from the selfish self: the “old man.”
