At church in Talin today, the message the Lord gave me to preach was about brothers who, when Jesus passed by and called them, left everything to go and follow Him. The question is: How many are willing to give it all up, to leave behind everything, if so be necessary, to follow the Lord? Answer is: Very few. Thus the Scripture, “…..The Harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few.” (Matthew 9:37)
Will you be the one? Will you leave it all behind, give it all up? Are you willing to follow Jesus and live an amazing life? A life of adventure and peace and joy unspeakable and full of glory? Will you follow the Lord? Someone once told me, “Susan you are the queen of leaving it all behind!” But, you see, that’s because I decided to follow Jesus and I was committed to whatever that meant, whatever He wanted me to do, I was willing. It was the best choice I ever made; willing to give everything up and in return, He has given me everything! Amen!
Jesus said “……If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24)
