The Conditions of Discipleship

My Utmost His Highest

"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also . . . And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me . . . So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple." (Luke 14:26-27, 33)

Discipleship means personal, passionate devotion to a Person — our Lord Jesus Christ. There is a vast difference between devotion to a person and devotion to principles or to a cause. Our Lord never proclaimed a cause — He proclaimed personal devotion to Himself. To be a disciple is to be a devoted bond-servant motivated by love for the Lord Jesus. Many of us who call ourselves Christians are not truly devoted to Jesus Christ. . . Whenever the Holy Spirit sees an opportunity to glorify Jesus through you, He will take your entire being and set you ablaze with glowing devotion to Jesus Christ. (read more) (purchase)
