The trouble with many Christians today is that they have an insufficient idea of what God is Asking of them.
How glibly they say: Lord, I am willing for anything.
Do you Know that God is Asking of you your very life?
There are cherished ideals, strong wills, precious relationships, much-loved work that will have to go.
So do not give yourself to God UNLESS YOU MEAN IT.
God will Take you Seriously, even if you did not mean it seriously.
