Jesus sometimes called on someone to sell everything they owned and follow Him. Sometimes Jesus suggested someone to not bury a close family member. Jesus knows our limits. Jesus will press on them and bring them to surface.
- What will my reaction be if He asks me to do what I don’t want to do?
- What does Jesus really want?
- Am I listening?
It is a question that begs to be answered.
Jesus tells us to count the cost of following Him. Why? Because it will cost us something dear. Jesus compels us to give up everything to follow Him. EVERYTHING!
- How deep is my commitment?
- What are the limits I have placed on my relationship with God?
- How far is too far?
Honesty compels me to admit I have limits. I don’t want to.
This is where I need God to give me power to be bolder. This is where I need more faith that God is in a good mood and only has good things in store for me.
