The only way to follow Jesus is to die to yourself everyday.

I wish there was an easier way. Instead of giving up the life I have…wouldn’t it be nice to simply add Jesus to my existing life? But Jesus doesn’t give that as an option. Following Jesus requires a cross. 

Jesus says the only way to follow Him is to DENY OURSELVESTAKE UP OUR CROSS, and FOLLOW HIM!

Being a disciple of Jesus requires everything! Jesus demands ALL OF US…our relationships, our desires, our lives, our possessions, our everything. ONLY JESUS can command our top loyalty & take first place in our lives. 

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Apostle Paul writing to the church in Galatia (Galatians 2:20)

All of us must ask ourselves…

  • Am I willing to put my relationship with Jesus above all other relationships? 
  • Am I willing to die to my own desires and plans to live by God’s will for me? 
  • Am I willing to surrender all my possessions and all that I am to receive God’s kingdom?
