How can I be sure I would lay down my life for sake of Jesus & the gospel? Perhaps I’ll be like Peter in his bravado and subsequent denial?

Can’t ultimately be sure until I’m called on to do so. But there are indicators in what I am reluctant to give up…

If I’m not prepared to give up my bed to go and serve someone, I can be fairly confident I won’t give up my life…

* * * *

If I refuse to give up a holiday abroad so I can support someone in gospel ministry. I can be fairly confident I won’t give up my life…

* * * *

If I’m not willing to pursue people who are different from me in order to bless them, I can be failry certain I won’t give up my life…

* * * *

If I’m not prepared to miss out on promotion so I can stay & help plant churches, I can be fairly certain I won’t give up my life…

* * * *

If I’m not prepared to jeopardise a friendship so that I can tell others about Christ, I can be fairly certain I won’t give up my life.
