Good day, Family: A CALL TO DEEPER COMMITMENT:
"27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?"(Luke 14:27-28)It is really very much unnatural for mankind to desire and seek after God. Romans 3:11b-12a reminds us that "there is none who seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless." Following after God and becoming a true disciple of Christ means, therefore, a profound denial of self - a relinquishing/putting off of ALL our plans ambitions and wishes for His. To take up one's cross is twofold; it involves such denouncement of selfish ambition (a sort of death to self) and conversely, a taking on of Christ. The putting off and taking on go hand-in-hand. Once we've put off self, we must take on Christ's purpose. And yes, somewhere in that self-denial an taking on Christ's purpose might involve SUFFERING because the cross also represents His suffering. It is a cost that each believer must consider as s/he follows Christ in DEEPER COMMITMENT.The question to us is, "Is He worth it?"Father, may we never be fooled into thinking that there's any cost to much to pay to deeply commit ourselves to Your purpose. Illuminate our hearts to the reality that in following you, even though we may have to give up things, experience lack or suffering, these [light afflictions] are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed in us. By your Spirit, take us DEEPER.
