He Wants to be Your One and Only

What Jesus is describing here (Luke 14:26) is more accurately understood by picturing a race for first place in your life and he is the only one on the track.  Jesus isn’t just saying, “I don’t even want there to be a second place.”  When we compare our relationship with him to anyone else there should be no competition.  Fans will try hard and make Jesus one of many.  But when Jesus defines the relationship he makes it clear; he wants to be your one and only.
