FORGET FAMILY

Scripture for Today

Luke 14:26 Jesus turned and told them, "Anyone who comes to me but refuses to let go of father, mother, spouse, children, brothers, sisters—yes, even one's own self!—can't be my disciple. (Msg)

As singles we cling so much, we want our family to approve of everything. Yes! Its a popular saying FAMILY IS EVERYTHING. Family is not everything if you make up your mind to follow Jesus totally. Anyone who decides to work with the Lord and in purpose will certainly have a lot of disapproving statements from even family members and close friends.

Young people like my self are easily manipulated into the feeling that if God approves of a thing then everyone will agree. The standard of Jesus is very high, you need to even deny yourself. You need to let go of all the pleasures that you can derive from your own personal lifestyle.

When following Jesus we are to shed unnecessary weight, unnecessary approval, unnecessary support from friends and family. Jesus is the best support we can ever have in sickness, in health, in sorrow and even in plenty.

I most confess I have been in my most uncomfortable situations with family. Left to my Christian family I am not working in the way of Christ, they believe I shouldn't not do some things in the name of following Jesus.

Our self will have to be the least important person, our family will have to be the least important people, their approval will be the least important approval. All you need is the voice of Jesus telling you the right way to God. For Abraham to be blessed by God and made the Father of many nations God had to separate him. Are you ready?

Prayer: Father, help me walk with with denying myself, my family and even friends.
