Matthew 19:21 (NLT)

21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Before you can totally follow Jesus, you must give up the things of this earth.

Yikes, really!?  At least the love of things of this terra.  

Complete surrender, complete emptying of self.  Losing personal motives….
