Beloved in God, our Heavenly Father is highlighting one of the core messages of Jesus in this time and season for the Body of Christ. That message is discipleship. When we said yes to making Jesus our Lord and Savior we were enlisting ourselves to His army. That yes was never meant to be “say yes once and we are good to go to heaven”. Without discipleship it is as if we are not even living a life we were called to live. Giving our lives to Jesus means following Him and everything He says without compromising anything He values. Since this is the common theme in the Body of Christ that God is bringing out you are encouraged to listen to this teaching by Curry Blake and make the necessary changes needed in your life. Be blessed!

The gospel has been presented in such a way that when we come to God He takes care of us, blesses us and its all about what He does for us. But that is not the case. The real gospel of Jesus is transformation back to the image of Jesus which is why He tells us to deny ourselves, pick up the cross and follow Him. It is so crucial to first deny ourselves because if we still hold onto what seems right to us or our feelings and emotions not aligned to the new creation He has made us to be then we would continue living our lives for ourselves and never end up see the clear way of our Heavenly Father. It would be tragedy to miss out on this way of life because it is the only way to live. Listen to this short clip a sermon by Dan Mohler explaining this truth with great clarity. Be blessed!
