eSeed: Loyalty

Read Luke 9:57-62

One day a fellow said to me, “I want to give my dog away.”

“Why?” I asked. “He’s a beautiful dog.”

“Yes,” he replied. “But he follows everybody, and a dog that follows everybody isn’t good to anybody.”

Like that man, our Lord wants loyalty. That’s why He said, “Follow Me.”

When you follow Him, you’ll do more than exist, you’ll live. You’ll do more than touch, you’ll feel. You’ll do more than hear, you’ll obey. You’ll do more than take, you’ll give. You’ll do more than worship, you’ll work.

It costs nothing to become a friend of Christ.

But it costs everything to be a follower. Dare you pay the price?

Prayer: Just now, Father, we deny ourselves, and we take up our cross to follow Thee faithfully. Enable us and embolden us to follow Thee to the hilt and right to the end: through Christ. Amen.
