Jesus is inviting us to get rid of the things that don’t give us life. Jesus is offering us life and freedom.
The Lord waits for us to come to a point where we are willing to let go of our sins, attachments, and addictions. When we recognize that the pain of changing is less than the pain of staying the same is when the change will come.
Do I believe that God can help me break free? What do I need to let go of? What do I need to cut off from my life? Jesus is inviting us to spiritually respond.
