DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 24 Sep 2022
We are often quick to profess our love for God. We put up a public show of it in the way we dress, in the manner of our speech and in our dietary preferences. AND We present ourselves as God’s favourite children who are regular in church services and dutiful in meeting all our religious obligations. And we therefore conclude that these are all what God needs.
Nothing can be farther from the truth. God’s standard is much higher, and He expects us to abide by it. Great multitudes had followed Jesus Christ. Knowing their hidden motives for coming, He made one of the most remarkable statements in the gospel.

He told them that those who would follow Him and become His disciples, must love God far above everyone else – parents, spouse and children. They must, above all, love God more than they love themselves. They must also be prepared to make far-reaching sacrifices, to bear their cross.
Christ did not want them to gather frivolously around Him. They must first count the cost of what discipleship entails. He underscored this point with the illustration of the need to prepare and provide adequately before embarking on a construction project or waging a war against an enemy. Discipleship demands that they forget their achievements and personal preferences, and follow Christ. This is the only way they could be useful in the kingdom of God.

The Lord does not want us to make empty profession of our love for Him, but to demonstrate it by our actions. We must come to Christ without any hidden agenda, or self-serving motive. Our concern should be to follow His footsteps and work for the expansion of the kingdom of God. We must subordinate our personal ego, ambitions and achievements to the lordship of Jesus Christ. We must take Him at His word, and follow as He leads.
