"In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple."
Luke 14:33 NIV
Jesus does not call us to himself so that we can get rich and have everything go the way we want. He calls us to total devotion, laying down of our ambitions to fully follow Him.
Consider--what am I still holding onto that I have not given over to Jesus?
God Almighty, You are awesome and I praise You! I want to obey Jesus as You said in this passage. I want to be Your disciple, so please work on me and reveal to me every area where I have not given up everything I have and given it over to You. Please give me strength to follow through and be Your disciple. I love you!
