Successful study with my boyfriend! We came to an agreement to study the book of Hosea together. I am excited to see what God reveals to us through our weekly devotions! Yay for us being so INCREDIBLE :) <3
“Jesus refused. ‘First things first. Your business is life, not death. Follow me. Pursue life.”
I love the way The Message puts this verse. Studied Matthew 8 this morning and some of the miracles Jesus performed. Starting in verse 18 Jesus begins to discuss what it is to follow him. One of his disciples says he must go and bury his father first and Jesus responds with this verse above.
Jesus is not in the business of listening to our excuses, following Christ demands complete loyalty, what are your priorities? Don’t continue another day to put off following Jesus, nothing should be placed above the commitment of living for him. He is life in which we need to pursue wholeheartedly.
