No one wants God to be Lord, but everyone wants Him as Savior. You don’t want Him calling the shots to have ownership over all that we are. Sure, we want the Lord to Save us from Hell, but be on the throne in our lives? We don't want anyone telling us what to do. We are not here for ourselves, to acquire my preference, my wants, my desires. We are here for His Glory. That is what follow me means you put it all on the line, you leave all behind, you drop everything and follow. Your good name, your comfort, you lay in it all down. To take the Lord we take Him as Lord or we don’t take Him at all. Savior, comforter, friend, helper and the list goes on and on, all that comes with the Lord. Will we suffer, probably. Suffer or not suffer is Comfort your King. We can't give up our $5 coffee or surely not our every day convinces to follow Him, we just want Him there to rescue us. What about rescuing someone else? Warning them of hell, taking time to help them understand the Bible, maybe you don't understand it much either. We need to teach them. That will take dropping what you want to do to serve them, not yourself.
