There is no middle course. You must be on one side or the other – for Christ or against HIM. "He that is not with ME is against ME." Wouldst thou be lukewarm? Neither hot nor cold? Christ says He will spue such out of His mouth.
"He that loveth his life shall lose it." "He that loseth his life for My sake and the Gospel’s shall save it. Whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath he cannot be MY disciple."
Don’t seek a long life–Christ had a short one.
Don’t live in luxury–Christ lived and died poor.
Don’t live in pleasure–Christ pleased not Himself.
Don’t live for fame–Christ made Himself of no reputation.
Don’t live at ease–Christ suffered for you the shame, the scourge, and the cross.
Don’t lose your opportunity and inherit an eternity of shame and regrets here-after.
