Pastor Mike Gaylor

In Matthew 10:34–36, Jesus said He came to bring a sword, an instrument which divides. His mission is the cut us off from this present world. In doing this He would set children against parents and vice versa. The love of family should not be greater than our love for Jesus Christ. A true disciple takes his cross and follows Jesus (Matthew 16:24). He must be willing to face family hatred and even death.  What we find when we follow Him, is the peace Jesus intended for us. 

Three Thoughts

  • He has severed us from the world
  • We live in hostile territory
  • He must be our supreme relationship and love
