When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He does not intend for us to make just a very small contribution. Instead, Christ calls for our total commitment and sacrifice.
This involves a denial of self and our selfish ways. As Christians, we should be willing to endure whatever affliction that come upon us in laboring for the Lord. We certainly should not seek trouble or opposition, but when these things come, and they will, accept them in the spirit of Him who bore His cross for all of us.
Christ loves us and He wants our total commitment to Him. How would you finish this statement? I am willing to ----- ------- -------- for Jesus!
