If you read the interactions of Jesus throughout the Gospels, his questions and answers were specific to the heart of the person he was talking to. To the rich man, he told him to give up his money. To Nicodemus, he replied, you must be born again. To the invalid, he asked if he wanted to be healed.
He loves us...and He knows the parts of our hearts that we keep hidden.
C.S. Lewis describes God's requirement for discipleship this way. "Give me all. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work. I want you...Hand over the whole natural self, all the desire you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked – the whole outfit. I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you myself; my own will shall become yours" (Mere Christianity).
Learning together to be "all in"...
