Is our concern more about going to heaven than loving the King? (Chan and Yankoski 86)
“Jesus said, ‘If you love me, you will obey what I command’ (John 14:15).” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 86)
“James 2:19 says, ‘You believe there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.'” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 86)
“First John 2:3-4 tells us, ‘We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.'” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 86)
“In Matthew 16:24-25, Jesus says, ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.'” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 86-87)
“And in Luke 14:33, He says, ‘Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.'” (qtd. in Chan and Yankoski 87)
