“So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:33….
How much does the Lord tell us to forsake to follow Him? A little? A lot? No! ALL! Now He may not tell each and every one of us to forsake the exact same things. He told me to sell my house and hit the road for Him full-time. He may tell someone else to buy a house and fill it with widows and orphans. He may tell one person to sell all he has and use that money to fly to Africa to do missions work for decades to come. He may tell someone else to use her money to pay for a bus to drive people across town to minister to the poor and downtrodden. The point isn’t what He tells each of us to forsake in following Him. The point is that we should not hold onto ANYTHING or ANYONE He tells us to let go in order to fully and faithfully follow Him!
Need to do some forsaking? Some letting go? Seek the Lord and obey what He tells you! He will give you the strength, oh yes!
