They gave up everything and Followed Jesus.
Then denied themselves and, in Obedience, Submitted to Christ’s Commands.
Give up everything to Follow God’s Divine Leading.
So too us! we must relinquish our whole heart, life, and strength in order to Claim Christ.
It is only then that we can Share with Him in His Victory through the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Everything else is worthless when compared with the Priceless Gain of Knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
