The Latin decidere literally means “to cut off.”

From this word, we get our English word, “decide.”

When you make a decision for one thing, you make a decision against another thing.

This is a basic tenet of the Law of Non-Contradiction a la Ravi Zacharias.

If you decide to follow Jesus, you decide to forsake all others you could follow.

You have options available to you.

To choose one, however, means to forsake the others.

Jesus said it this way:

Matthew 6:24

"No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

Stop trying to choose Jesus AND ______ (money, women, sex, career, comfort, 6-pack abs, facebook friends, nice purses, fast cars, popularity, pinterest followers, youtube fame, etc…)

Just Jesus.


Cut off everything else or be cut off from Him.
