Laying Down Our Lives

More than 17 years ago, God changed my heart and gave me new desires.  I went from living for my own desires in pursuing a well-paying, prestigious career as a civil engineer, to working with the inner-city kids of Minneapolis.

This kind of transformation was only possible through a radical change of my heart.  1st John 3:16 says that,

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

For me, being sent looks like following the example of Christ in trying to lay down my life for others, no matter the cost.
