Day 11 Reading: Genesis 24-25, Matthew 8:18-24, Psalm 10:1-15 and Proverb 3:7-8
The cost of following Jesus, is giving Him the full authority in our lives as our King. He is in full control of everything and He is our hope. His Kingdom is here and now and is advancing and we cannot wait until someone dies and then do about God’s things later. His will is never a second priority. We would always honor our father and mother but we must put Jesus first as He would teach us the best way to honor our parents and loved ones when we do it His way.
"And Jesus said to him, 'Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead.'" – Matthew 8:22 (English Standard Version)
"Lord, thank you for teaching me where to concentrate in my life. Let me accept things and relationships that I should put to rest no matter how important they were to me. I hear Your call Jesus. Instead of wallowing in my sorrow I will follow You and start living a Kingdom life that brings new hope. In Jesus’ name, Amen."
