Good Morning! Do you really love the Lord? Is He first in your life? Are you ready to pick up your cross and truly walk with Him. That being said, He (Lord Jesus) should be first before your parents, spouse, children, siblings, and etc. Are you ready for the challenge? It will be days you have to walk along during the journey. There will be times you will have to end all or mostly friendship, including those you been friends with over 15+ years. Can you handle the heat? Can you handle being different than the world? Are you ready to get persecuted by those you love and those you don’t know? Before you make a decision, count the cost. It’s costly to serve Jesus but it’s so worth it. Many times people despise being alone and will settle for any friendship or relationship. When you truly walk with Christ your entire world will change for the better. I didn’t say, you wouldn’t have trouble but you will handle it with Joy. Ask yourself, Is Christ first in my life?
“”If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.” Matthew 10:37-39 NLT
