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 
My disciple.  

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.  


The Highest Calling
   When the Standard Oil Company was looking 
for a representative in the Far East, they 
approached a missionary and offered him $10,000. He 
turned down the offer. They raised it to $25,000, 
and he turned it down again. They raised it to 
$50,000, and he rejected it once more. 
   "What's wrong?" they asked.
   He replied, Your price is all right, but 
your job is too small." God had called him to be 
a missionary, and anything else was not worthy 
of his consideration. 
   What should we be for Jesus Christ? Most 
Christians are not called to be missionaries or 
preachers, but they are called to follow Christ. They 
are called to be faithful wherever He puts them 
- in the school, in the home, in the factory 
or office, in the neighborhood and nation. They 
are called to be controlled by the Spirit and to 
bear the fruit of the Spirit. They are called to 
be Christ's ambassadors wherever God puts 
   Nothing less than God's call is worthy of 
our consideration. [Hope for Each Day by Billy 


   In giving ourselves to God, we must 
necessarily give up all that would separate us from Him. 
Hence the Saviour says, "Whosoever he be of you 
that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be 
My disciple." Luke 14:33. Whatever shall draw 
away the heart from God must be given up. Mammon 
is the idol of many. The love of money, the 
desire for wealth, is the golden chain that binds 
them to Satan. Reputation and worldly honor are 
worshiped by another class. The life of selfish ease 
and freedom from responsibility is the idol of 
others. But these slavish bands must be broken. We 
cannot be half the Lord's and half the world's. We 
are not God's children unless we are such 
   There are those who profess to serve God, 
while they rely upon their own efforts to obey His 
law, to form a right character, and secure 
salvation. Their hearts are not moved by any deep sense 
of the love of Christ, but they seek to perform 
the duties of the Christian life as that which 
God requires of them in order to gain heaven. 
Such religion is worth nothing. When Christ 
dwells in the heart, the soul will be so filled 
with His love, with the joy of communion with 
Him, that it will cleave to Him; and in the 
contemplation of Him, self will be forgotten. Love to 
Christ will be the spring of action. Those who feel 
the constraining love of God, do not ask how 
little may be given to meet the requirements of 
God; they do not ask for the lowest standard, but 
aim at perfect conformity to the will of their 
Redeemer. With earnest desire they yield all and 
manifest an interest proportionate to the value of 
the object which they seek. A profession of 
Christ without this deep love is mere talk, dry 
formality, and heavy drudgery. SC44,45
