Jesus taught something remarkable, which must have puzzled people the first time he said it, for I know it puzzled me when I first learned of it. However, once I did what he taught, it made sense: 

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.”

– Luke 9.24 

How can you find your life by losing it? The key is that he said by losing it for his sake, we will find it. 

Once I became a Christian and learned to apply the teaching of Scripture to my life and to understand what Scripture said, my life became what the Lord wanted it to be all along. I no longer live for myself, but for him, and in so doing I found my purpose in life and that gives me a new view on life. 

When I died to myself being the lord and accepted the Lordship of Jesus the Christ, my view of everything changed, for the better.
