Jesus says—Count the cost! There can be nothing more important to you than Me if you want to be My disciple. That may sound harsh, but consider it. Seriously!
He is the giver of life—for me and for those I love. He alone has the ability to give my family salvation and the way to live.
Even my life is worth nothing without giving it totally to Him. For even if I die, He has given me eternal life. And the same goes for my family.
They must have Him! I must have Him! He must control them. He must control me. For us to truly be together forever. So He is the most important thing in all our lives and in comparison to loving Him—it’s like hating them—which ends meaning I truly love them by loving Him the most.
Think on this and please let me know your thoughts. And there you go!
