So the question today, what do you base your life on? What guides you in and through your daily activities? Because the answer should be God but is that always the case? God is very clear in His word, this is from Luke, “If people come to me and are not ready to abandon their fathers, mothers, wives, children, brothers, and sisters, as well as their own lives, they cannot be my disciples. To me, those are some strong words, ready to abandon the people that are really close to us, including ourselves. I know for me personally that is hard. It’s hard to put others needs above our own, it’s hard to just completely cut ourselves out of the picture and focus completely on God. But it says loud and clear, that is the way to be one of His disciples. And don’t we all want that? We should.
So stop trying to base your life on what other people think and also what you yourself wants and focus entirely on God, and what He wants. He wants to be in a intimate relationship with all of us if we will just let Him.
