He Wants All of You

Matthew 10:34-39

Jesus doesn't offer fire insurance.  He calls sinners to surrender and follow Him.  He demands surrender.  He wants all of you.  The Gospel does give peace with God and it does bring peace with others.  However, the Gospel brings division and conflict.  Following Christ Jesus may bring division because Christ demands faithfulness at any cost.  He also demands you love Him more than anything or anyone.  While these verses are difficult, they point us to the demands of Jesus that the world does not comprehend.  They seem harsh to those who are perishing, but they are life to those who believe in Jesus.  Jesus told the disciples in the upper room that He was the only way. (John 14:6)
