Not Peace,But a Sword

Posted: September 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:34-38)

Did anyone ever write harder words than the Lord Jesus? What could He have meant with these? We can sit in an ivory tower and pretend that we are giving it all, but have you faced this? Has your family been divided over Christ?

Jesus said, ‘You call me Master and Lord, and so I am.” But is He Master in your life today? We call Him Savior, we call Him friend? We call Him so many things, but how often do you call Him Master?
