Forsaking all for Christ

Luke 14:33 (New King James Version)
"So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple."


To Follow Jesus is not a minor or a light decision that a person can do. It’s forsaking your ALL and making HIM your ALL. It is carrying your cross. It is dying to yourself and living through the life he had given. Let’s read the preceding verses:

"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple."

God is a jealous God [Exodus 20:5] and He deserves to be the #1 in your life!

There was a young rich ruler who went up to Jesus and asked what it takes to inherit eternal life. He asked what more he can do when he faithfully obeys all the commandments. To this Jesus looked at him and loved him, said “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” [Mark 10:21]And the young ruler went away sorrowful for he had great possessions.

A lot of us are like this Young Man. We can easily confess and announce that we follow Jesus but we turn back and went away when things start to be demanding, when it starts to change our lifestyle, when it starts to prevent us from doing what we love to do and when it tries to invade our lives. Remember, when Jesus is not Lord of all, he’s not Lord at all.

Christian life is not a happy-go-lucky life! It takes one to sacrifice. It takes one to change. It takes one to forsake his ALL! Let go and yes LET GOD!

God bless you as you continue to follow him!

  2. Last friday night at my woman's bible study we were to make cardboard signs. One side reflecting what we once were and the other side what we are today. The study was based on Kay Warren's 'Dangerous Surrender' Giving all our all to God and following him. My sign at first: I have always been afraid of dying.. Now I am trying to die to self and pick up the Cross and follow Him... I love the way God just keeps you on track. Your blog was my reminder. Thank you.

  5. There are a lot of Christians who believe when they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior life is going to be easy for them. They need to read the Bible and see that those who followed Jesus did not have an easy life. They had to sacrifice a lot. I believe this is where most Christians give up because they do not want to sacrifice for Jesus. Little do they know how wonderful and precious a relationship with Jesus truly is. Yes troubles come. Yes there are days when you get discouraged. Yes there are storms which pop up into your life but you do not go through them alone. Jesus is right there with you seeing your through the best and worse days of your life. You do not concentrate on the troubles in your life today, you look forward to the eternal life with Christ. Jesus wants us to enjoy life to the fullest. The only way this can happen is when you have the love of Christ within your heart. Our relationship with God is a love relationship which must never be broken. I pray that everyone who comes to Christ will stay in the love relationship despite the troubles of this life which is but for a moment. Great are their rewards in Heaven!

    Awesome post my friend. :)

  6. The reward that awaits us is far greater than what we are going through right now. More than we can ever imagine. God bless you Valerie!
