He says that we must lose ours life, we must die to ourselves. (Matthew 10:39, Luke 9:23).....
But He gives us eternal life in return!
He says we may lose our family, our family may forsake us (Matthew 10:35)
But He, our heavenly Father, gives us brothers and sisters!
He says we may have to give up our possessions, we can't seek money and material (Mathew 19:21)
But He gives us treasure that does not fade away! (Luke 12:33)
He says give freely of what you have. (Luke 6:30)
But we have been shown grace and mercy!
He says we must love unconditionally everyone we encounter (Mark 12:31, Luke 6:35)
But He has shown us such overwhelming and boundless love.
He says we may not have a place to sleep.
But He says He provides and cares for even the birds.
He says we may get harmed and beaten. (Luke 6:28)
But we are secure in the arms of Christ and we can look to those before us.
