We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10-10 New King James Version

It will mean sacrifices which are very difficult. It means you may have to walk away from family and friends (Yes most of your most strongest opposition will come from your family and friends).

Your sole devotion is to be unto our Heavenly King. He is to be above everything and everyone else.

Luke 14:7-29 New King James Version
If you take up the offer but then realize the price is too high and decide to drop out of Christ’s kingdom you will be laughed at for sure.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
