No Turning Back

I was talking to a friend the other day and they said they have come too far in God to turn back now. I agree. I feel like Peter when he tells our Lord "To whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life". Peter had made a decision that he could not go back. Many people I encounter don't feel that way. Unless we are not willing to let go of everything, but Christ, then we are not true disciples. We have not taken up our cross to follow Him anywhere. There is no growth for those people. They will only experience a shadow of what God has really intended for their life. They will stand with their small lunch behind their back refusing to turn it over to the Master. They will settle for 5 loaves and 2 fishes and miss the miracle. They will eat and be filled for about one day and then they will be hungry again.

Let go of your life! Make a decision to move forward in Christ and not look back. Jesus will fill you so that you will never desire to turn back again.
