Luke 14:33 [ESV] So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.
Luke 14:33 [NLT] So you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything you own.
Luke 14:33 [NIV] In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.
Yesterday I started a new Sunday School Series that I’ve entitled: HONESTLY – Reflections on David Platts book: RADICAL
The underlining question is: Do I really BELIEVE the Bible?
We hit a verse like this and my first question is – “Well, wait a minute what’s the context?”
Second question, “Is the verse really speaking to me?”
Third question, “What’s “all”,what’s “everything”?
Fourth question, back where I started, “Do I really believe the Bible?
If belief = obedience, what am I going to do with this verse?
