“Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Mathew 16:24) (KJV)

[su_pullquote align=”left”] When he heard the “WORD OF GOD” his heart was filled with joy which nothing until now has given him! Immediately he declared before everyone that he will give away his property to the needy![/su_pullquote]

We all as a children of God long to live our life in the footsteps of Jesus Christ as his disciples. Here Jesus Christ has mentioned a prime requirement to be His disciple, “He should deny himself”. Yes you should not have love over worldly things as we mediated yesterday. Jesus Himself has confirmed this,

“Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:33)

You may ask how to forsake the love which I have in worldly things? Let us examine the life of Chief in Bible who overcame this. Yes, it is the life of Zacchaeus.

Zacchaeus who learnt that Jesus Christ was passing by Jericho he wanted to see how He is, and the Lord called him by name and said that He wants to abide in his house. When he heard the “WORD OF GOD” his heart was filled with joy which nothing until now has given him! Immediately he declared before everyone that he will give away his property to the needy!

“Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.” (Luke 19:8,9)

And historians say that Zacchaeus since then followed Lord and he was one who was selected as the 12th disciple replacing Judah. Yes, Matthias is Zacchaeus. He became one of the 12 disciples of God.

Friends this is the secret when you mediate in the “WORD OF GOD” love over all the temporal things will vanish away and you will start seeking the eternal Kingdom of God! Do not make you separate from the “Word of God”. Always be in touch as the David, Daniel did.

Will you then deny yourself, take upon your cross and follow Him? Surely you will be His disciples and do miracles even more than the disciples themselves, for the coming of the Lord is very near!

“Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31,32) Amen.

Abad of Jesus Christ,
