Choosing to serve God often comes with a price… #NoTurningBack

1 Kings 19:21 

Elisha then returned to his oxen, killed them, and used wood from the plow to build a fire to roast their flesh. He passed around the meat to the other plowmen, and they all had a great feast. Then he went with Elijah, as his assistant. 
…what do you feel called to leave behind?

Jesus did not feel like dying on the cross for you…

Luke 22:41-44 

He pulled away from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and prayed, “Father, remove this cup from me. But please, not what I want. What do you want?” At once an angel from heaven was at His side, strengthening Him. He prayed on all the harder. Sweat, wrung from Him like drops of blood, poured off His face. 
…He chose to die for you. 

The carnal self cannot live in harmony with the spiritual self. 

Numbers 33:52, 55 

Then drive out all the people living in the land in front of you. Destroy all their cut stones, and all their man-made gods, and all their high places. Drive out the people who live in the land in front of you. If you do not, then those who are allowed to stay will be like sharp pieces in your eyes and like thorns in your sides. They will trouble you in the land where you live. 

Let your actions reflect God’s love for you. 

Joshua 24:16-18 
The people responded, “It would be unthinkable for us to abandon the Lord to serve other gods. The Lord our God brought us and our ancestors out of slavery in Egypt. He did these spectacular signs right before our eyes. He guarded us wherever we went, especially as we passed through other nations. The Lord forced out all the people ahead of us, including the Amorites who lived in this land. We, too, will serve the Lord, because He is our God.”
