Jesus keeps me safe from my biggest problem: me

It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:  If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:  If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
(Paul, servant of Jesus, 2 Timothy 2: 11, 12, 13 KJV)

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
(Jim Elliot, servant of Jesus)

If I ask Jesus in, if I entrust to him my heart, my soul, my life, my self;  he never leaves me, he never forsakes me.

If in fear, or other selfishness, I act in a way that lets others believe I do not belong to him (I “deny him”), he removes his power from me, he removes from me the ability to affect change on his behalf (he “denies [me]”).

Though I “believe not,” Jesus does not deny me (he does not leave me); because he is in me and “he cannot deny himself.”

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
