light_driven: This is Your Time...continued

I posted something a while ago asking, "Would you die for your Savoir?"

Now let's look at something else. Something less important and more at the same time. Something that most Americans just don't quite understand.

Matthew 19:21 "Jesus answered, 'If you want to be perfect, go, sell  your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me."

Most of you responded that you would die for Him...would you give up everything for Him? I'm not just talking money...though that is a big deal. I'm talking your LIFE. Would you be willing to give up your alcohol, your time, your girlfriend, your money, your outing with friends, your lifestyle, your sexual preference, your friends, your movies, your music, what would you be willing to give up for Him?

He called us to go "sell all your possessions," I'm not saying it's bad to be well off. I'm not saying to go live a life a poverty. I"m saying can you give up what you think is important and start to be

                                       Eternally focused on what

                                           Eternally matters.

You can't take your car, your house, your time with you. What you've been given is precious, you should start thinking about what you've been doing that effects the Kingdom.

                       What have you done in your life that matters?

If you will be like Jesus, which is how we are supposed to be, you will be hated. You will lose all of that. You might even lose your family. The only thing they hated Jesus for were His words. We are supposed to say the same things Jesus said. If you do, then you will be hated by a lot of people. Some may even seek to kill you. They did Jesus...
