Title: The Nature of True Discipleship
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters - yes, even his own life - he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26
When people come to Christ, they are looking for fulfillment, for new life, power, strength and provision. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). That’s the invitation, but Jesus also says, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matthew 16:24). How are we to interpret these two statements that appear to be on opposite ends of the spectrum? This week, Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, explains what seems to be a paradox of the Christian life, not as a contradiction of two conflicting ideas, but as a means to an end.
Kia ora Charles,
Thank you for all your letters to me and thank you very much for the lovely Devotional books you send each month. They are very precious to me. I keep all of them and re-read them again from time to time.
The 2013 Holy Land Tour was a wonderful success and many people were blessed and spiritually uplifted by the trip. Even if you could not make it, you can still experience some of what they saw and felt through our Online blog.
