John 12:25 (NIV) The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. What does this mean? Does this mean, if he take care of himself, he will lose his life and if he hates the way how is life is, he will be able to keep it for eternity? I am confused. I want to know what does this verse suppose to mean and what's it context are. If anyone wants to explain this, I will be grateful.
