Scripture For Today: If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine........(Matthew 10:37)
Think about it, what husband or wife would be okay with a spouse that put his or her parents before them. In the natural realm, we can relate to how disturbing and upsetting this can be to the loyal spouse. So imagine even greater how disheartening it would be for us to put anyone, including our parents before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Some people won't even leave their parent's church and God has clearly told them its time to move to a new land (as he told Abraham).
Single women, beware of a man who hasn't "left mother and father" and has made the parents his god. He may marry you on paper, but you'll never have a husband. Beware of marrying "boys" parading in a man's skin (topic to be continued).
To follow Christ, we must become a grown-up and be willing to speak up for righteousness sake, even if some may become angry or even disown us. For Christ I live, For Christ I die! A lot of time its not a natural death, but we must be willing to die to our own ways of doing things and take on His ways. Christ makes it clear in Mathew 10:32 that if we deny Him, He will deny us, but if we acknowledge Him publicly on earth, He will acknowledge us in heaven before his Father! Glory be to God! Lord, I choose to acknowledge you now and forever! I can't do this life without you.
Receive God's Best and Never Settle For Less!!!
