Wesley's Notes for Luke 14:33


14:33 So - Like this man, who, being afraid to face his enemy, sends to make peace with him, every one who forsaketh not all that he hath - By withdrawing his affections from all the creatures; By enjoying them only in and for God, only in such a measure and manner as leads to him; By hating them all, in the sense above mentioned, cannot be my disciple - But will surely desist from building that tower, neither can he persevere in fighting the good fight of faith.


Discussion for Luke 14:33

  • Lorenzo Dobbins for verse 33
    Religion tells us if we give up some of our possessions we 're okay.......but CHRIST said give up ALL of it.....
  • Brianna for verse 33
    The person who can not part with his belonging can not be a disciple of Christ. In some countries there is so much emphasis put on material things. However, Jesus Christ was described as not having a place to lay his head. It 's hard to not become attached to material possessions, especially when they provide so much comfort. This scripture helps to keep in mind the place of material things. They can not save when in a crisis.
