What Jesus Demands from His Followers
Bible Text: Luke 14:25-35 | Preacher: Josh Wheatley | Series: The Book of Luke
Jesus’ difficult teaching in this passage brings us to face the completeness of God’s claim on our lives. While the context of Jesus’ other teaching clearly indicates he is not instructing hateful action, the comparative priority of our love for him vs our other relationships, responsibilities, and resources could be perceived as hatred. A great beauty of God’s total claim, however, is that as we surrender totally to him we love those around us most completely.
