Your Word for Today: 17/08/2020

Verse: Isaiah 14:26

If any man come to Me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife,and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.

  • To be His disciple is to be a disciplined follower of Jesus.
  • The word “hate” in this passage means “love less”.
  • Jesus demands that our loyalty and love for Him be greater than every other attachment, even to our own families.
  • Accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour demands believing the truth of the gospel.
  • It also demands committing ourselves to sacrificially follow Him.
  • The choice between denying ourselves or living for our own selfish desires must be made daily.
  • That choice determines our eternal destiny.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to lower in rank or position all earthly relationships to loyalty Christ. May I die to self-centredness, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Have a Great Week. Good morning. Shalom!

God bless you always and in all ways.
