My personal journey through the Bible
I love how God's Word can speak different things to different people at different times. I read this and feel Him telling me to not worry about what others are doing, look only to Him. Let other people take care of their own stuff, just focus myself on Him.
Have you ever heard the phrase “you are dead to me” before? The title of that little section is: The Cost of Following Jesus. I suppose those that make excuses as to why they can’t follow Him are thought of as dead. The Cost of NOT following Jesus=death. I suppose the actual cost of following Jesus would be to accept discomfort in order to follow Him which is covered by vs 20 because it says, “the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” I suppose it’s not always “comfortable” to follow Him. There’s always going to be something to take care of. The Cost of Following Jesus=discomfort (It is totally worth it!) This section also got me thinking about something else I had been mulling over for quite some time. I feel like I have my answer to that conundrum but am totally open to God’s leading in that area of my life.
Thanks for the comment
