Luke 9:23


"And he said to all, 'If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." ESV


If we truly want to follow Christ, there is a great sacrifice of self that must be offered. It is no longer what we want, but what He wants. It is to walk out actively each day the kind of life Christ lived. In doing this, we have a living, inspired relationship with the Lord God. Today, many so called Christians believe they are living that close relationship with the Lord, but they are only filling their minds with knowledge about the things of God and exchanging their ideas with others who do the same. Knowing the Lord personally is the way, not knowing about Him.


Heavenly Father, please forgive us for wanting to know more about You than wanting to know You. Show us when we get off on this path and lead us back to the real meaning of loving You with all our hearts, souls, and minds. We ask in the name of Jesus, Amen.
