When we really want something we commit ourselves with all we have and all we might ever have to get it. Nothing is too great or too burdensome, because those "other things" no longer matter; they have no value for us anymore. Luke 14:33, "...any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple." If we think we are "giving up something" or "making a sacrifice" to have JESUS, we must not have the "SAME MIND" as JESUS. We still don't think like HIM, we still want other things in addition to THE FULLNESS OF JESUS; when all we want is JESUS, WHAT DO WE REALLY GIVE UP?
