The Duty of Self-Denial
One may go to heaven without earthly comforts, but will not go without self-denial.
We have a natural tendency to fight for our rights and to exert our own will. We have been taught to look out for number one. Yet Jesus clearly said that the first step in following Him is to deny ourselves (Luke 9:23). In this classic treatise, Thomas Watson reminds Christians of their sacred duty of self-denial by explaining what it is and demonstrating how its every act asserts the supremacy of Jesus Christ. This volume also contains ten additional messages by Watson, further challenging readers to forsake all in order to gain all in Christ.
