Memorize: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26

Read: Matthew 10:35-38

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

The F in our equation for Resistance in the “Mathematics of Christ in You” (MCY) series that we started on January 11, stands for Family Ties. As difficult as it sounds, if Christ is going to operate freely in you, some family ties would have to suffer, as we see in today’s memory verse. What Jesus was saying is that your love for Him, relative to what you feel for your family, should be incomparable. When God told Abraham to sacrifice his son who he loved, Abraham wasted no time in trying to do so. Of course, God only wanted to find out what Abraham’s choice would be if he had to choose between Him and his son. Open heaven January 2021 Tuesday January 19

I once had a similar experience. As the youngest and only male child of my mother, I had a close relationship with her. Before I met Christ, I would always spend Christmas with her.
However, after joining the Redeemed Christian Church of God and becoming a Pastor, I had to spend my Christmas instead at the Christ The Redeemer’s Congress. One particular year, we were going to have the programme at ljebu lgbo, Nigeria. Since I would not be around during Christmas, I decided to visit my mother on December 23rd to tell her l would see her after the programme. On getting there, I found that she was dying. I was in a dilemma; the programme had to start in two days.I was one of the organizers yet no one in the Church knew where I had gone, and there were no mobile phones in those days. It was a difficult choice, but I said to my mother “You know I love you and would love to stay by your side, but I have to go because Jesus is calling. Thank God for good mothers, she made it easy for me. She said “My son, I understand. I can already see your involvement with Jesus Christ”. She then prayed for me. I thought it was going to be our last conversation; it turned out to be a test by God because she lived for another eleven years.

From the report I received, even before I got to ljebu Igbo, she had recovered. God wanted to find out who I would choose if I had to make a decision between Him and my mother who l loved so much.Nothing, not even family ties should come between you and God.

It is always important we know that God is the One we are going to meet at the end of our lives, and He is the One we will give account to, as regards how we lived here on earth.
