Word Filled Wednesday

" Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:27.

I thought this was a great verse to follow my book review post yesterday.

Jesus really offers us no option. It isn't his desire for us to fit God's mission into our own priorities.

Being a Christ follower should be an act in breaking out of our comfort zone . Something like getting out of the comfortable pew and meeting God where he is working and abandoning ourself to Christ.

As I think of this verse I realize that the book Start Here isn't really only for teens if your interested in reading it I have a giveway copy. So leave a comment and I'll enter you!

You can go here to read the book review.
