Luke 14:25-35
"Altered Allegiance"

We find in this passage some hard words from Jesus to all who would be his disciples.  Jesus calls us to listen carefully and think hard about what discipleship entails.  As we will discover, following Jesus is no small or insignificant thing but calls for the radical altering of our allegiances.  This transformation can ultimately happen only when the greatness of God’s love and grace begins to dawn on us, moving our hearts and shaping our lives.
