Daily Play Call #81

33 So then, any of you who does not forsake (renounce, surrender claim to, give up, say good-bye to) all that he has cannot be My disciple.

Luke 14:33 AMPC


Forsake,Goodbye to All

Luke 14, verse 33, is a very tough Scripture but we cannot neglect it or skip over it. Jesus' words are tough because forsaking all may require us to give up family, jobs, school, and other things in our life to live for Jesus. Here are some examples. If a Christian has family members who do not believe or are in disagreement with the Word of God, that Christian may have to leave in order to be obedient to God. This usually happens a lot for those who were muslim and became Christians. This also happens in households where the family was atheist and then one person becomes a Christian. The whole household may reject them because of their faith.

Another example is our jobs. If our job is asking us to compromise and do something that would cause us to disregard a command of Jesus, we will have to make a decision to stay or leave. When it comes to school, the Lord may call a Christian to go to a Christian college to study theology instead of going to a state school.

The main point of the verse is that we MUST be willing to let go of everything in our life to follow Jesus. Jesus doesn't say to forsake SOME, He says to forsake ALL. We must be willing to do this when the time comes. Purpose in your hearts today to follow Jesus no matter the cost. STRIVE for the Kingdom of Heaven. It must mean EVERYTHING to you.


44 The kingdom of heaven is like something precious buried in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field.

45 Again the kingdom of heaven is like a man who is a dealer in search of fine and precious pearls,

46 Who, on finding a single pearl of great price, went and sold all he had and bought it.

Matthew 13:44-46 AMPC
