Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:33
When the standard oil company was looking for a representative in the Far East, they approached a missionary and offered him $ 10,000. He turned down the offer. They raised it t $ 25,000, and he turned it down again. They raised it to $ 50,000, and he rejected it once more.
“What’s wrong?” they asked. He replied, “Your price is all right, but your job is too small.” God had called him to be a missionary, and anything else was not worthy of his consideration.
What should we be for Jesus Christ? Most Christians are not called to be missionaries or preachers, but they are called to follow Christ. They are called to be faithful wherever He puts them-in the school, in the home, in the factory or offices, in the neighborhood and nation. They are called to be controlled by the Spirit and to bear the fruit of the Spirit. They are called to be Christ’s ambassadors wherever God puts them.
Nothing less than God’s call is worthy of our consideration.
