He Won’t Share Us – Not with Money, Career, or Even Family

So in Luke 14, Jesus defines the relationship by making it clear that if we don’t follow him, we follow him and him alone.  He won’t share us – not even with money, not with a career, not even with your family.  Maybe you read a passage like this and it seems that God is being a little possessive and jealous.  But understand this – when Jesus explains that he will not share your affection or devotion, he isn’t just saying how he wants to be loved by you; he is making it clear how he loves you.
