Bible Commentary for Luke 14:35

Wesley's Notes for Luke 14:35


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.

14:34 Salt - Every Christian, but more eminently every minister. #Mt 5:13|; Mr 9:50.
