• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride


    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Losing the soul life

  1. Self-denial, self-sacrifice, selflessness, the deification, losing the soul life, the salvation of the soul are all refer to the same thing from various aspects.
  2. It is a prevailing lie in the world that the purpose of life is to maximize the pleasure, happiness, and satisfaction. In fact, the denial of the soul is the path the genuine satisfaction and real happiness.
  3. To lose the soul life or to deny one’s soul is to continuously empty oneself, which often requires the hurting and killing of one’s pride and arrogance. And its reward is now. 
  4. We as Christians need to learn the lesson of suffering, which is to have a mind and heart to suffer, and we cannot discard an option simply because it is sacrificial. 
  5. The subtle, spreading, and penetrating tentacles of narcissism and peculiarity must be dealt away one by one, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. This daily and lifelong process is the salvation of the soul. This process requires enjoying Christ as the empowering grace and he resurrection power. 
  6. The more we diminish our sense of self-centeredness and self-importance, the less we are fearful of death and life. No longer burdened by needs to protect our selves we are able to lift our eyes from ourselves so as to truly recognize others. We become more self-forgetful and more God-remembering. 
  7. The moment of losing oneself is the moment of liberty, freedom and emancipation. In becoming the prisoner of Christ Jesus, we become truly free. 
  8. Man may ultimately become God only by completely emptying and giving up oneself. The deification of man is to be genuinely selfless and without oneself. This process requires loving God with the whole soul, whole mind, whole heart, and whole strength so as to lose oneself in the Lord and be fully mingled with Him.
