And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

(Luke 14:27)

 


It costs to serve Jesus Christ; we must be prepared to pay the price every day, every step of the way. Many will try to water down the gospel in an attempt to gain more followers, but Jesus is not looking for easy followers; He wants fully committed disciples.

Jesus wants disciples who will worship at any cost. He must come before personal relationships and reputations. His disciples must prioritize Him over their families and loved ones, and even before themselves. He must come before personal realization. The decision to follow Jesus was the last independent decision any Christian ever made; our lives now belong to Jesus.


• What has it cost you to follow Jesus?

• What might Jesus be calling you to give up today to follow Him more closely?


Ask the Lord to bring to mind anything that is prohibiting you from fully committing to Him. Consider the steps you need to take to move toward full commitment in light of this.
