"... Take to heart all these words I am giving as a warning to you today, so that you may command your children to carefully follow all the words of this law. For they are not meaningless words to you but they are your life..." (Deuteronomy 32:46-47 HCSB)
"So likewise, whoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple." (Luke 14:33 AKJV)
Following Jesus is no casual commitment. We must follow Him with all our heart.
