Luke 14:33 - Jesus Our All in All.
Luke 14:33 (NKJV) So likewise, whoever of
you does not forsake all that he has cannot be
Luke 14:33 (AMP) So then, any of you who
does not forsake (renounce, surrender claim to,
give up, say good-bye to) all that he has cannot
be My disciple.
My granddaughter Allie loves to collect
stuffed animals. Whenever Im going on a trip,
shell say, Papa, bring me back a stuffed
animal. Awhile back I was on a trip and made a video
of some stuffed animals for Allie. Then I
called to ask her which one she liked.
Papa, Im not obsessed with stuffed
animals anymore, she said.
Im just obsessed with talking with
That warmed my heart. I think we all
should say to God, Lord, Im obsessed with
talking with You, walking with You, hearing from
You, and knowing You.
Disciples of Jesus must turn the title
deed of their lives over to Christ. Jesus said,
You cannot become my disciple without giving up
everything you own (Luke 14:33 NLT). The New King
James Version says, Whoever of you does not
forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.
Its a reminder that we are actually not owners,
we are stewards. Everything we have will be
passed on to someone else one day.
Does that mean its a sin to have a
car, or a house, or clothes, or some money in the
bank? Of course not. This verse could be
translated, If you want to be My disciple, surrender
your claim to everything in life. Its a
recognition that God is the owner. God is in control of
it. We recognize that we are just stewards over
it for a period of time.
It is not wrong to have a career, but it
is wrong if your career has you. It is not
wrong to have possessions, but it can be wrong if
your possessions have you. Your only real passion
and obsession in life should be Christ. All
these other things have their place - but not the
most important place. [Greg Laurie from Harvest
