Willing to sacrifice all?


If Jesus asks me to give up everything I currently have, love and cling to, will I obey?  He desires for me to be blessed with the blessings He has planned for my life. 

Am I holding onto broken dreams? 

Shattered hope? 

Second-best expectations?

Do I really desire His will, or just say I do? 

Am I willing to give up all... for Jesus?

"And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!  For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
And those who heard it said, “Who then can be saved?”
But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
Then Peter said, “See, we have left all and followed You.”
So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life."
Luke 18:24-30
