To be a Christian

(J.R. Miller)

Consecration to God is nothing less than doing the will of Christ, rather than our own will — doing it always, whatever . . .
  the cost,
  the sacrifice,
  or the danger.

There is too much mere pretense in our religion. We say that we believe in Christ; but if we truly do, we must follow Him wherever He leads, though we don't know where. We say we love Christ, and from His lips comes the crucial test: "If you love Me — keep My commandments."

To be a Christian is to be devoted utterly, and irrevocably, to Christ!

"And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple!" Luke 14:27
