Read Luke 9:23 (https://bit.ly/2Xh6VK7)
We have all heard the saying, “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Growing up I heard this expression a lot! I never understood why I just couldn’t have it both ways. In Luke 9:23, we are given the same message. If we want to be a disciple of Jesus, then we must deny ourselves. We can’t hold onto to our worldly ways AND follow the path of Jesus. We need to choose. We can’t deceive ourselves into thinking we could be Christians merely by believing the right things about Jesus. As a disciple, you not only have to believe that Christ is worth following, you also have to take steps of faith to deny yourself, pick up your cross, and follow Him daily. A life devoted to do what’s pleasing to God requires surrendering our wants and applying Christ’s example to our lives. We grow through sacrifice!
