“He saved others;
He is not able to save Himself”
The truth in Christ is they who would would save their own life will have nothing to give to others. They who lose their life for Him will have much to give. The disciple is to follow in the footsteps of their master; He who saved not Himself upon the cross bids us to follow in like manner.
In losing we find
In saving we lose
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it”
