Divine Gospel

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Our Lord God, Savior, and King of us all, Jesus Christ, the Living Son of God to whom be glory forever.

Luke 14 : 25 - 35

Chapter 14

25Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them,
26"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
27And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
28For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it--
29lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him,
30saying, "This man began to build and was not able to finish.'
31Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
32Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.
33So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.
34"Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?
35It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"

And Glory be to God forever.
