No Compromise

The gospel of Christ admits of no compromise. It demands our ALL. If it required less, it would be unworthy of its great author and finisher. I rejoice that it requires ALL, this is its glory. When we are brought to yield to its claims, and give up ALL, then, and not until then, will it throw around us its arms of mercy.

[Jared Waterbury]

Luke 14:33 ...  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Matthew 16:24 ... Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Proverbs 21:21 ... He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
