Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Who’s Really in Charge? (Biblical Allegiances)
The Critical Need: Live as radical disciples (Luke 14:25-35)
Following Jesus is a sacrifice. We sacrifice something and we should not be afraid of that. What stands in your way of following Jesus? Why can’t you sacrifice it to the cause of following Jesus? Jesus’ promised that if we give up something that holds us from following Him we will certainly be rewarded. Following Jesus and sacrificing something is like the two rails of a railway track. You need to have both to make the journey.
