The Sunday evening lesson from January 5, 2020
None of Self & All of Thee (Mark 8:34-38)Phillip Stuckey, January 5, 2020
Part of the Hymn Studies series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The Bible clearly shows us that the life of the Christian is not easy (Mark 8:34-38). It is a journey of faith where we must strive to continue to grow and mature (Phil. 3:13-14). It is a struggle to keep our minds on the will of God and not our own. Let’s consider the hymn, “None of Self and All of Thee” by Theodore Monod, that reminds us of that struggle and the importance of putting Christ first in our lives.

Mark 8:34–38 (Listen)
34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
