Does Jesus want all or nothing?

I just saw this quoted by someone on Facebook:
“He wants all or nothing. The thought of a person calling himself a ‘Christian’ without being a devoted follower of Christ is absurd.”
― Francis Chan

Do you agree or disagree?
And how does this fit in to the doctrine of grace?

    I believe that in order to consider your self a christian first you have to believe the truth of who Jesus is. You have to know who he is. Without knowing him how can you even consider your his follower. A lot of people claim to know Jesus. Yet he even said their will be some who call my name and he will say I don’t know you. I tried to find it but I maybe one of you know what I am talking about. But I did find this in reference to what your talking about.
    Mat_16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.KJV

    Matthew 16:24-28

    “A true disciple of Christ is one that does follow him in duty, and shall follow him to glory. He is one that walks in the same way Christ walked in, is led by his Spirit, and treads in his steps, whithersoever he goes. “Let him deny himself.” If self-denial be a hard lesson, it is no more than what our Master learned and practised, to redeem us, and to teach us. “Let him take up his cross.” The cross is here put for every trouble that befalls us. We are apt to think we could bear another’s cross better than our own; but that is best which is appointed us, and we ought to make the best of it. We must not by our rashness and folly pull crosses down upon our own heads, but must take them up when they are in our way. If any man will have the name and credit of a disciple, let him follow Christ in the work and duty of a disciple. If all worldly things are worthless when compared with the life of the body, how forcible the same argument with respect to the soul and its state of never-ending happiness or misery! Thousands lose their souls for the most trifling gain, or the most worthless indulgence, nay, often from mere sloth and negligence. Whatever is the object for which men forsake Christ, that is the price at which Satan buys their souls. Yet one soul is worth more than all the world. This is Christ’s judgment upon the matter; he knew the price of souls, for he redeemed them; nor would he underrate the world, for he made it. The dying transgressor cannot purchase one hour’s respite to seek mercy for his perishing soul. Let us then learn rightly to value our souls, and Christ as the only Saviour of them(MHCC)”

    From the Barnes Commentary
    Matthew 16:24-28

    This discourse is also recorded in Mar_8:34-38; Mar_9:1; and Luk_9:23-27.
    Let him, deny himself – That is, let him surrender to God his will, his affections, his body, and his soul. Let him not seek his own happiness as the supreme object, but be willing to renounce all, and lay down his life also, if required.
    Take up his cross – See the notes at Mat_10:38.
    Mat_16:25
    Whosoever will save his life … – See the notes at Mat_10:39.
    Mat_16:26
    For what is a man profited … – To gain the whole world means to possess it as our own – all its riches, its honors, and its pleasures.
    “To lose his own soul” means to be cast away, to be shut out from heaven, to be sent to hell. Two things are implied by Christ in these questions:
    1. That they who are striving to gain the world, and are unwilling to give it up for the sake of religion, will lose their souls; and,
    2. That if the soul is lost, nothing can be given in exchange for it, or that it can never afterward be saved. There is no redemption in hell.
    Mat_16:27
    For the Son of man … – That is, he will return to judge the world.
    He will come in glory the glory of his Father the majesty with which God is accustomed to appear, and which befits God. He will be attended by angels. He will judge all people.
    Reward – The word “reward” means recompense. He will deal with them according to their character. The righteous he will reward in heaven with glory and happiness. The wicked he will send to hell, as a reward or recompense for their evil works. This fact, that he will come to judgment, he gives as a reason why we should be willing to deny ourselves and follow him. Even though it should be now attended with contempt and suffering, yet then he will reward his followers for all their shame and sorrow, and receive them to his kingdom. He adds Mar_8:38, that if we are ashamed of him here, he will be ashamed of us there. That is, if we reject and disown him here, he will reject and disown us there.
    Mat_16:28
    Verily I say unto you … – To encourage them, he assured them that, though his kingdom was now obscure and despised – though he was cast out and little known – yet the time was near when he would be regarded in a different manner, and his kingdom be established with great power.
    This cannot refer to the end of the world, and there is no need of referring it to the destruction of Jerusalem.
    Taste of death – That is, die. Before they die they shall see this.
    Son of man coming in his kingdom – Mark and Luke have explained this: Mar_9:1, “Until they have seen the kingdom of God come with power;” Luk_9:27, “Till they see the kingdom of God.” The meaning evidently is, “till they shall see my kingdom,” i. e., my church, now small, feeble, and despised, greatly enlarged, established, and spreading with great rapidity and extent. All this was accomplished. All these apostles, except Judas, lived to see the wonders of the day of Pentecost; some of them, John particularly, saw the Jewish nation scattered, the temple destroyed, the gospel established in Asia, Rome, Greece, and in a large part of the known world.
    Remarks On Matthew 16
    1. People will often judge far more correctly about natural than about spiritual things, Mat_16:1-3. In respect to natural objects they are watchful. In them they feel a deep interest, and they watch for every sign that may affect their interest. They are too much concerned to judge falsely. But they feel no such interest in religious things. Hence, it happens that people who have good sense and much wisdom in regard to worldly concerns, are often exceedingly foolish in regard to religion. They believe reports respecting religion, revivals, and missions, which they would despise on any other subject. They read and believe newspapers and other publications, which they would hold in contempt on any other topic but religion. They give a degree of weight to arguments against the Bible, and against the doctrines of the gospel, to which they would attach little or no importance on any other subject. They sustain themselves in infidelity by arguments which they would regard as of no force if the same kind of reasoning was urged in defense of anything else.
    2. It is of importance to watch the signs of the times, Mat_16:3. In the days of Christ it was the duty of the people to look at the evidence that he was the Messiah. The proofs were clear that he was the Messiah. It is also important to look at the signs of the times in which we live. They are clear also. Much is doing; and the diffusion of the Bible, the labors among the pagan, the distribution of tracts, and perhaps, above all, the institution of Sunday schools, betoken an eventful age, and are an indication that brighter days are about to dawn on the world. We should watch these signs that we may rejoice; that we may pray with more fervor, and that we may do our part to advance the kingdom of God. Little children should grow up believing that they live in an important age; that they enjoy many special privileges, and that they may and must do much to spread the gospel through the earth. Even in childhood, they should pray, and they should give to benefit others; and, most of all, they should give themselves to Christ, that they may benefit others with a right spirit.
    3. Sinners should be addressed with deep feeling and faithfulness, Mar_8:12. Jesus sighed deeply. So should we. We should not be harsh, or sour, or cold and unfeeling when we address our fellow-men about eternity. We should weep over them, and pray for them, and speak to them, not as if we were better than they, but with an earnest desire for their salvation. Compare Act_20:31; Phi_3:18.
    4. People easily mistake plain instruction, Mat_16:7. And especially is this the case where there is any chance of giving a worldly turn to the instruction. If people’s thoughts – even those of Christians were more off from the world, and they thought less of the supply of their temporal wants, they would understand the truths of religion much better than they do. No man can understand the doctrines of religion aright whose principal concern is what he shall eat, and drink, and wear. Hence, even Christians are often strangely ignorant of the plainest truths of religion; and hence the importance of teaching those truths to children before their thoughts become engrossed by the world; and hence, too, the importance of Sunday schools.
    5. We should not have undue anxiety about the supply of our wants. Christ supplied many thousands by a word, and he can easily supply us, Mat_16:9-12.
    6. We should learn, from his past goodness, to trust him for the future, Mat_16:9-12.
    7. We should be on our guard against error, Mat_16:11. It is sly, artful, plausible, working secretly, but effectually. We should always be cautious of what we believe, and examine it by the word of God. False doctrines are often made as much like the truth as possible, for the very purpose of deceiving. “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light,” 2Co_11:14.
    8. It is important to ascertain our views of Christ, Mat_16:13-15. Our all depends on this. If we do not think and feel right respecting him we cannot be safe. We should often, then, ask ourselves – we should ask one another – what we think of Christ.
    9. It is our duty to profess attachment to Christ. It should be done boldly, and always, Mat_16:16. We should never be ashamed of him. And to do this, we should always, in our own hearts, believe that he is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
    10. We should esteem it a great happiness and honor to be enabled thus to show our attachment to him. The world may not honor us, but God will, and He will pronounce us blessed, Mat_16:17.
    11. God only reveals to people right views of Christ, Mat_16:17. This he does by his word and Spirit. We should, then search the Bible; and we should pray much that God would reveal his Son in us, and enable us boldly to confess him before people.
    12. The church is safe, Mat_16:18. It may be small – it may be feeble – it may weep much – it may be much opposed and ridiculed – it may have mighty enemies – the rich and the great may set themselves against it – but it is safe. It is founded upon a rock. Its enemies shall never be able to overcome it. Jesus has promised it, and in all ages he has shown that he has remembered his promise. It has not been suffered to become extinct. It has been persecuted, opposed, ridiculed, and almost driven from the world; but a few have been found who have loved the Lord; and soon the flame has kindled, and the church has shone forth “fair as the sun, clear as the moon, and terrible as any army with banners.” So it is still. Feeble churches may mourn much – iniquity may abound – the few pious people may weep in secret places, but Jesus hears their groans and counts their tears, and they and the church are safe. He is their friend, and all the powers of hell shall not prevail against his church.
    13. The importance of prudence in delivering truth, Mat_16:21. It should be well-timed – it should be when people are prepared to receive it. Especially is this true of young converts. They have need of milk, and not of strong meat. They should not be surprised that many doctrines of the Bible are mysterious now, but they will fully comprehend them hereafter. Peter, a young convert, did not understand the plain doctrine that Jesus must die for sin, yet it was made clear to him later, and, most cordially, he loved it.
    14. It is highly wicked and improper to attempt to counsel God, or to think that we understand things better than he does, Mat_16:22-23. God’s plan is the best plan; and though it does not fall within our views of “wisdom,” yet we should be still. It is all wise. What He does we do not know now, yet we shall know hereafter.
    15. We see what religion requires, Mat_16:24. We must deny ourselves. We must submit to trials. We must do our duty. We must welcome persecution, Mat_5:10. We must be, in all places, among all people, and in every employment, Christians, no matter what may happen. Come poverty, disease, persecution, death, it is ours to take up the cross and do our duty. So, apostles, and martyrs, and the Saviour himself have gone before us, and we must follow in their steps:
    “Shall I be carried to the skies
    On flowery beds of ease,
    While others fought to win the prize
    And sailed through bloody seas?
    “Sure I must fight if I would reign;
    Increase my courage, Lord,
    To bear the cross, endure the shame,
    Supported by Thy Word.”
    16. How foolish are the people of this world! Mat_16:26. In a little time how worthless will be all their wealth! It is gained by anxiety, and toil, and tears. It never satisfies. It harasses them with constant care. It smooths no wrinkles on their brow, alleviates no pain when they are sick, saves no friend from death, gives no consolation in regard to the future, and may be left at any moment. Others will soon possess, and perhaps scatter in dissipation, what they have obtained by so much toil. See Psa_39:6. And while they scatter or enjoy it, where shall the soul of him be who spent all his probation to obtain it? Alas! Lost, lost, lost – forever lost! And no wealth, no man, no devil, no angel, can redeem him, or be given for his soul. The harvest will be past, the summer ended, and he not saved. In gaining the world he made two things certain – disappointment and trouble here, and an eternity of woe hereafter. How foolish and wicked is man!
    17. The righteous should rejoice that Jesus will come again to our world. He will reward them, Mat_16:27. He will come as their friend, and they shall ascend with him to heaven.
    18. The wicked should weep and wail that Jesus will come again to our world. He will punish them for their crimes, Mat_16:27. They cannot escape. See Rev_1:7.
    19. It will not be long before he will come, Mat_16:28. At any rate, it will not be long before we shall meet him. Death is near; and then we must stand before him, and give an account of the deeds done in the body.”

    All I can say is ask Jesus what he thinks about this comment and then study the bible and see what his answer is. Who are we to judge whether a person is christian or not. I think it’s more important to remember to look within ourselves and see what were doing. Start cleaning up our own houses first. Just saying.

  2. Timothy Luke says:

    “I would that you were cold, or hot, but because you are neither cold, nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth” Jesus, to John on Patmos.
    There are many doctrines of grace. True grace is extended to those who extend themselves.

    • barbie49701 says:

      So do you believe in order to receive grace we have to seek it with our whole heart? There are many doctrines of grace huh? What do mean by that. Many beliefs what grace is? There is only one real doctrine of grace. That’s what God teaches us. Just saying.

      Origin:
      1125–75; Middle English < Old French < Latin grātia favor, kindness, esteem, derivative of grātus pleasing Related forms grace·like, adjective un·graced, adjective Word Story ¡Gracias! Grazie! When a Spanish or Italian speaker says thanks, they are invoking one of the meanings behind the word grace. That’s because grace, gracias, and grazie all descend from the same Latin word, grātia. For the ancient Romans, grātia had three distinct meanings: (1) a pleasing quality, (2) favor or goodwill, and (3) gratitude or thanks. We find all three of these meanings in modern-day English. The first when we describe someone as having (or not having) grace: “Dancing, she had all the grace of an elephant on skates.” The second when we talk about giving or getting grace: “by the grace of God.” And the third when we say grace (i.e., “thanks”) at a meal. So if you have something to be grateful for, you can say thank-you, grātia, gracias, or grazie. Just make sure you don’t give that something a coup de grâce.

      On a personal note thank you for making the wheels within my head start turning about grace. I feel I have been blessed because of it. That is why I posted to share with everyone.

      I know that we cannot continue to sin and expect for Gods Grace to cover us. Im dealing with a person now. Who thinks the world itself is against her. That everyone is out to talk about and harm her. You even make a joke about something and it gets totally twisted around to where she thinks your talking about her. And in the same breath she claims that God will protect her and strike those people down. So im confused and have to wonder if Gods grace is even covering her? I know its complicated huh! How can a person be so angry and upset all the time but yet call themselves saved?

      • She sounds like she has deep hurts and spiritual problems. Its not our role to know for sure if a person belongs to Him. We can urge people to walk in forgiveness and love. Forgiveness will be a major issue for this person, I suspect. You can’t be forgiven by God unless you forgive those who have wronged you.

      • childofjesus says:

        Well brother, let us first accept that we are ordinary people with an EXTRAORDINARY God working in our lives. I can quote many verses from the Bible to show what God can do for us..and the promises He has for us..
        But let me tell you how we as a couple are trying to make a family together..When we are upset about something and our argument starts to get ugly..me shouting at the top of my voice..suddenly he will get up and break something valuable..all our hard earned money goes into pit in less than a second..(please i request you not to start breaking things otherwise your partner might end up breaking something else)..I’m just trying to tell you our weaknesses..In due course of time he understood what irrates me and i refrained myself from making the argument ugly..
        Now you are aware of things what irrates her..Change the things what you can and the things which you cannot change, give it to Jesus..If you don’t get time or feel uncomfortable to pray infront of her then pray at night when all are asleep..Even after an ugly fight take initiative to do things which pleases her maybe some help in household work..Lack of communication & disregard for each other can only make this distance more…
        Our understanding & common sense fail, when our MIGHTY God is at work..Give all your weakness to Him.
        With best wishes & prayers

  3. The purpose of the Gospel is to surrender all unto Him in order that you may be fully delivered and freed. The Lord offered this gift for the purpose of His glory and for us to come to the understanding of Who He is through this experience of full deliverance in Him. So that after it’s completion we may take part in His work in helping others come to this understanding also. In regards to the comment posted by Francis Chan, it has two aspects to it. The first speaking of ‘all or nothing’ reminds me of the command that God the Father gave to the Israelites in Deut. 6:5 and also that same command that Jesus told us to do too in Matthew 22:37. There were reasons for this command, as with all the commands the Lord advises us on: they are right in His eyes, they please Him, they bring glory to Him, they are for our best interests, they are for good, they will keep us safe from the evil one, they bring life to us, etc. (to name a few reasons). The Lord prefers for ‘it all’ because He has plans for us which are for good (Jer. 29:11). But there are those that do not give ‘it all’ because they have chosen not to or they lack understanding of how to go about it, so instead they ‘settle’ so to say for what God could have done with them if they allowed Him to take it all (Matthew 25:14-30, the parable of the talents).

    In Francis’ second comment, it would be best to say it another way…”the thought of a person not taking the gift that God has given them, His Spirit by His grace through Jesus completely serious and with all devotion and seeking for greater understanding is a true disappointment and sad.” It’s not surprising that one that believes in his mind from a carnal perspective that he’s a Christian because he says so as being absurd (that’s what the fallen nature does without understanding). It’s moreso, one that knows how to hear by the Spirit but doesn’t follow Him that grieves the Lord. To me, the second comment was more from a carnal perspective,but the first falls into the importance of what God wants from us in His commands, in order to fulfill the power of His grace and mercy in us by and through Him. What a testimony of Truth…

      I looked up 22:37 and what I read was great.
      Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
      Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
      Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
      Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
      Mat 22:41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
      Mat 22:42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.
      Mat 22:43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
      Mat 22:44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
      Mat 22:45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
      Mat 22:46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

      So the point of the gospels is to learn about Jesus. To learn from the recollections of Matthew Mark Luke and John who Jesus is. The only way we can become real christians is threw Jesus. How do we do that well for one we have to know who he is. Hands down best way to know someone is spend time with the person and learn what people around him think. They were there with him, so, their sharing with us.
      As to the second part to what he said, I have a question. Do you think that it’s absurb to call yourself a christain if you sin, yet believe that Jesus is the savior of the world? Think about this then I will tell you more about what I feel lead to say.
