“So no one can become my disciple without giving up everything for me.”
Luke 14:33 (NLT)
I read this yesterday and this is what I wrote in my journal:
When we give up everything for Jesus He returns it back to us in this life and in the life to come. It is the act of surrendering that Jesus is interested in. When we surrender we place our entire existence into that person’s hand. Because God is a loving God He is well able to return to us those things which are good for us. It doesn’t always have to be possessions. Many times it is a new perspective on things. God is so gracious and kind.
