Shearman: What does “Die or be killed” mean?”
We’re looking for people so sold-out to Jesus that they’re willing to die for their faith. At a minimum they need to have counted the cost of their faith. Jesus is looking for unoffendable followers – if we don’t commit to dying, he’ll go ahead and kill off that part of us that doesn’t look like him. He tells us that in Matt. 21:44. The choice is rather stark for those of us who want to do more than give our faith lip service.
good word from Andrew.
love the video blog series, keep ’em coming!
Jesus gave up His life, and died willingly. Soldiers came to break the legs of the crucified so they might die faster. It seems to me if we commit ourselves to our Father and die willingly, then we won’t encounter the cruel hand of man sent to us to help us die faster. In 1 Chronicles 21:13
David said, “Let me fall into the hands of the LORD, for His mercy is very great; but do not let me fall into the hands of men.”
Awesome, I love the videos, hope you will do more.
LOVE your comment Mark…VERY insightful!!
Jesus said you have to take up your cross and die to self daily. He also said if you dont love me more than your mother/brother/sister yes even your own life then you are not worthy to be my disciple.
You cannot die a little.
It is, and always has been all or nothing if you want to be his disciple. There is no middle ground.
