“If you want to be my disciple, you must, by comparison, hate everyone else—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26 NLT
We read scriptures like this and we nod and say "amen, yes Lord!" But what happens when it is time to apply it? Now more than ever God is looking for a return on his investment. He sacrificed his one and only son to restore us to himself. We can become so attach to or love ones that they become a idol. We may mean well by our actions but what if we were holding our self and them back from achieving what God planned. When parents send there child off to college they are letting that child go and releasing them to become successful adults. It is the same with the Church (body of Christ) Its time to be willing to lay it all on the line for Gods purpose no matter what or who it cost us.
Much Love & God Bless
