Jesus is Calling

These verses have been rolling around in my head for the past few months...

"In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple."
Luke 14:33

"...Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
Luke 18:22

Then on Monday Pete Wilson shared an A.W. Tozer quote on his blog about the monstrous substitution we make when God's gifts take the place of God.

Then my daily reading of Scripture just happened to include the following passage from Acts 4.
32All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. 33With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all. 34There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.
