Christian Cannot :: Denial and Discipleship


There are a few things that are impossible according to the Bible. In other words, these are the things that a Christian cannot be or do. Luke 14:26 expresses that a Christian cannot live to self and be a disciple of Jesus Christ. In other words, as a Christian, one must deny self to be a disciple.

Points to ponder:
There are many Christians who want/claim to be a disciple of Christ, but who are unwilling to deny themselves. Are you like one of them? Am I like one of them? Think of the things that you cannot give up — the things that you simply cannot give up. Once you have that list, prayerfully commit those to the Lord Jesus Christ, seeking his strength to give up what you cannot give up and let Jesus Christ, be your Master. Let us remember, a Christian cannot live to self and be a disciple of Christ.

Luke 14:26 (KJV)
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
