The Call to Surrender

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Mark 8:34 (NIV)
Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.’

O-bservation:

In this verse, Jesus extends an invitation to discipleship to both the crowd and his disciples. He outlines the conditions of discipleship, which include self-denial, taking up one’s cross, and following him. Jesus emphasizes the sacrificial nature of discipleship, calling his followers to surrender their own desires and will to follow him completely.

A-pplication:

I am challenged to examine my commitment to discipleship and my willingness to surrender my life to Jesus. It prompts me to consider whether I am truly willing to deny myself, take up my cross, and follow Jesus wholeheartedly. As a follower of Christ, I am called to embrace the sacrificial nature of discipleship and to prioritize my allegiance to Jesus above all else.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,
Help me to live a life of sacrificial love and obedience, glorifying your name in all that I do. Amen
