Disciples Wholeheartedly Pursue Jesus and His Work — There are realms of WHO God is that you may never encounter and understand without walking through the journey of obedience with Him. Jesus gave us commands to seek Him first, above all else, and to let Him lead us into a work He has for us. But such obedience cannot come from religious habit or a half-hearted, bare-minimum position. We are being called by a passionate and jealous God to enter into whole-hearted and ardent relationship. All else is distraction and literally cutting us off from the life and love we were meant to experience in Jesus.
