Lay down our lives? You mean total sacrifice?

Partial commitment is not allowed.

I remember a man in a church I attended long ago who had a grandson who was in the Army and his grandson was about to be deployed into a war zone. This man got up in church and with tears streaming down his face begged us to pray that his grandson would not have to be deployed! Apparently this young man had gone into the service in order to get help paying for college once he was out of the service and he never intended to actually face combat and once that reality presented itself he was begging God to allow him to avoid what he had committed himself to do.

Sometimes Christians are like that, they join for the perks but balk at the actual hard service! That is not a good soldier in the Army and that is not a good soldier of Jesus Christ!
