That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
When you have nothing else to lose, because you have given Him everything, you are free. The poor man hears no threats (Proverbs 13:8).
Life in the Spirit is a life of singularity. Only one thing matters. From multiple scriptures, the key to unlimited potential in the anointing, whether you have a little or a lot, is just focus.
[B]ut he who is doing the truth doth come to the light, that his works may be manifested, that in God they are having been wrought.
John 3:21 YLT
The Kingdom and the earth cannot be compared. They are so drastically different from each other, that Jesus says the only way to really live “there” is to not live “here”. This obviously does not have to be fully understood to be lived, but for those who look to understand and see what Jesus was saying, in order to live by it, it becomes evident.
He who begins to build a tower must first calculate the cost, lest he run out half way through (Luke 14:28). Jesus said that unless you hate your former life (Luke 14:26), every part, including family ties and who you used to be, you cannot be His disciple. Luke 14:33 goes a long ways and says that unless you give up everything you have, you cannot be His disciple.

In case you want to know, it costs everything.
Jesus said, Unless you hate your life, you cannot be His disciple (Luke 14:26). He said that unless you forsake everything, you cannot be His disciple. He said, you will always love one and hate the other. Wavering between two opinions only lasts so long.
In case you want to know, it does cost everything. And, you can’t go back. If you look at the life of Lot, you can’t even LOOK back (Luke 17:32).
Consider it this way, you were dead in your transgressions and sins. There was nothing in your old flesh that could be patched up. God didn’t fix your heart, He gave you a new one!
