Matthew 10:34-39

CHOOSING BETWEEN CHRIST AND FAMILY

“Anyone who loves his father or mother…his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me” Matthew 10:37, NIV.

Nabeel Qureshi grew up knowing the love and honour of family. She had the right environment to grow healthy and strong as a devout Muslim. In his search for the truth about Allah, Nabeel found Jesus Christ, and this discovery brought him face-to-face with the reality that choosing Christ would mean losing the people he loved most in life. Accepting this reality was not easy, but the grip of this truth would not let him go. As he chronicled in his autobiography, Seeking Allah-Finding Jesus, being excommunicated from his loved ones and having no family at his wedding was agonizing for him, but in it all, he said, “All suffering is worth it to follow Jesus. He is that amazing”.
Every one of us would have to sacrifice one thing or the other to follow Jesus. This is what Jesus underscored when He stated that He had not come to send peace on earth but a sword. Anyone who loves family more than Jesus is not worthy of Him. Taking up our cross, willing to let go of whatever competes with Christ in our lives is the sacrifice we have to pay to gain all in the end. When the expectation of your loved ones contradicts the plan of God for your life, what would you do?

Birthday Blessing: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you” Psalm 32:8.

RBT Passage: Joshua 5-7

“When situations arise and we have to choose between God or family members, there’s really no choice. Our greatest love and commitment has to be to Christ”. – Scott LaPierre

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
