At Christ's Table
Forsaking All to Follow Jesus (68 pages (2021)By William Furioso
What Does a God-Centered Life Look Like?
In this essay, we look at what “forsaking” means, what “all” means, and what “following Jesus” means. But the impetus for writing this essay clearly came from observing the spirit of materialism in our current generation - even among God’s people. The essay identifies this materialism with some discussion of Self-Centeredness, Man-Centeredness, and the love of this World. The Way of the Cross is discussed as the path to God-Centeredness. The goal put forth is to live our lives not for our “selfs”, but in pursuit of God’s eternal plans and purposes for His people. A quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “The Cost of Discipleship” sums it up: “If we would follow Jesus, we must take certain definite steps. The first step, which follows the call, cuts the disciple off from his previous existence. The call to follow at once produces a new situation. To stay in the old situation makes discipleship impossible.”
