Luke 9:51-62

“Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place
to lay his head.” (v. 58)

“No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service
in the kingdom of God.” (v. 62)

These statements from Jesus are challenging words for modern
Christians in modern nations, who want comfort and security and
ease… things that Jesus never guaranteed His followers. In fact, not
only did He not guarantee these things, He promised that following Him
would not be easy.

Those of us who do have it easy should stop and think, in light of
words like these. Am I following Jesus or simply a convenient form of
religion? Does Jesus have all of me? Is Jesus really everything to
me if following Him hasn’t cost me anything?

Again, let my prayer be “Take the world but give me Jesus.”
