Many want to follow Christ…second. Me first, Christ second. Of course, we never put it that way. We still call him ‘Lord,’ we still say he’s first, but our lives and choices say he’s second. And if he’s second, he’s not Lord. As someone said, “Christ is Lord of all, or he is not Lord at all.”
How do we put Christ second and how can we put him first? Luke 9:57-62 records three interactions between Jesus and three potential disciples that spotlight three rival lords to Jesus.
