Wikipedia says “Burn the ships” means the ‘point of no return (PNR or PONR) is the point beyond which one must continue on one’s current course of action because turning back is dangerous, physically impossible or difficult.’ October of 2018 For King and Country released a song called Burn the Ships. You can listen to it here:
Jesus spoke about leaving things behind, forsaking people and things in Luke 14:25-27.
Many people were traveling with Jesus. He said to them, “If you come to me but will not leave your family, you cannot be my follower. You must love me more than your father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters—even more than your own life! Whoever will not carry the cross that is given to them when they follow me cannot be my follower.”Easy Reader Version
We must love Him MORE THAN anything and anyone else we know and love. In 1982 I wrote We Must Go On © Molly Lin Dutina 3-15-82
It doesn't matter. We must go on. If they won't come with us, we must go on. Pressing together into the Kingdom. We must go on. Our Master Calls. We can try to tell them, but we must go on. Can't let earth hold us back we must go on. The Father soon will speak, Jesus will come. It doesn't matter we must go on. If we feel hurt and loss we must remember: the Father works for their salvation every hour of every day. We must obey - we must go on.
Burn the ships, forsaking all others, follow Christ. It still applies today!
One thought on “PNR”
An excellent mantra in so many respects…we must move on.
