c. Personal Application : What kind of commitment does God ask each of those who choose to follow Him? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your relatives states: “There are very few people who would be willing to give up their jobs, their homes, or their possessions to follow Christ. People today can’t even give up much of their time for Christ’s calling.” Do you tend to agree or disagree with your relative?
