I trust you are well.
This is a line that is almost synonymous with marriage. Lol.
Well I'm gonna be talking about marriage 😁 but not the earthly marriage. I'm talking about our marriage to the bridegroom - Jesus Christ.
Read the book of Mark recently and I was stunned by how the first disciples Jesus called left ALL including parents and followed Jesus without asking any question.
"And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and be My disciples, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And at once they left their nets and [yielding up all claim to them] followed [with] Him [joining Him as disciples and siding with His party]. He went on a little farther and saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were in [their] boat putting their nets in order. And immediately He called out to them, and [abandoning all mutual claims] they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and went off after Him [to be His disciples, side with His party, and follow Him]." -Mark 1:17-20 AMPC
Wow! What they left were not petty things if you ask me....Peter left his business - source of income. If they could leave these things (as important as they seem..I mean, what one could spend all night doing must be very important ) the question to you and I is what are we still holding unto? What is distracting us from our relationship with Christ?
Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests] and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].
Matthew 16:24 AMPC
God forbid that we do not make heaven. Remember, we live not just for the now world but the one after. We are kingdom people here on earth to live as Christ is where He is.
Loads of love,
