In Matthew Jesus said, "Those who love their father or mother more than they love me are not worthy to be my followers. Those who love their son or daughter more than they love me are not worthy to be my followers” Matthew 10:37-38 (NCV).
We don’t want to rock the boat with family or friends, so we do what they want. We do things because they are the easy way out. We don’t want to have to confront them.
But the truth is in order to be worthy of Christ we can’t follow another. Jesus said we would be hated for His names sake. It come with the territory of following Him.
Are you committed to following Jesus and only Jesus?
