Hate. Carry. Follow. Give Up-Luke 14.25

Today I read... Luke 14:25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:  26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.  27 And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple...33 In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my discipl

In coming to Jesus, I must HATE. CARRY. FOLLOW. GIVE UP...strong words...but I also read...Phil. 3:7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.  8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ

Today, I will gladly hate, carry, follow and give up so that I may gain Christ. You?
