The Denial of Ego

One of the primary things that hinders us the most from growing in Christ and connecting with others is that of pride. The more egocentric we become, the greater the gap between ourselves and Christ, and ultimately others grows. Jesus spoke of this very problem several times within scripture while providing the solution, “Deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow me.” This denial is not a partial prescription, but rather a full consecration onto God while letting go of our egos entirely.
