Luke 14:33 “So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.”
If someone is trying to hold you back, say to that person, “I’m sorry, but I am following Christ. If you want to walk with me, come on. You can be a spiritual soldier with me.”
A spiritual soldier must also forsake all he or she has for Jesus. That means you take everything in your life and say, “This belongs to you, Lord.”
That is what it means to be Jesus’ disciple. That is what it means to be His soldier: you love Him more than anyone, more than anything—just as He loves you!
