Luke 14:26

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 26 "If any man comes to me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters — yes even his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.3 [You must value the approval of the Lord far more than the approval of your family that will likely strongly oppose your obedience to some of the Lord's commands to you. You must mourn your compulsive anger, lust, emotions, and selfishness enough to hunger to be different: at peace, able to truly love, virtuous, without anger, without lust, and pleasing to your creator; if you don't hate your life, you don't have the motivation to bear the inward cross of self-denial.]

Romans 12:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service and worship.1 [At the conlusion of the death of our selfish, sinful nature, we are washed on the inside with holy water, we are burned with the Holy Spirit's baptism of fire, the blood of Jesus is sprinkled in our consciences, (the door to our heart), and we offer the incense of prayerful praise, joy, and thanksgiving for being freed from the darkness of this world to enter the kingdom. These are the events that you must see, feel, and experience before your belief has yielded salvation.]
