It’s not enough to only find the teachings of Jesus attractive.  A disciple must be willing to place Christ above all things, even other good things.  When I think about accepting the Lord, am I ready to pass over or even reject other things?  Where’s the sacrifice in my Christian life?  What have I left behind to follow Him?

Dear God, may your Spirit inspire me to accept not only the invitation to follow Jesus, but also the challenge to renounce anything else for Him.  May I count my sacrifice as a blessing.
