The Cost of Being a Disciple
March 29, 2020
Becoming a follower or disciple of Jesus Christ is a life altering decision. To choose to do so is an act of faith, but it is also a choice of life-long surrender to the will of God.
1) Count the cost of following Jesus, verse 26-28
Jesus is first place in heart, mind and soul
2) Consider closely the complete surrender, verses 29-32
The decision is not the end, but the beginning,
3) Consciously choose to follow Jesus above all, verse 33
Renounce – to willingly give up or set aside what one possesses
Our faith is the result of one man’s obedience to His Father’s will, and His surrender to finish the task. The gospel is good news. Jesus died so that we might have life in His Name. Faith in Him is life changing. He becomes to us the most important think, and rightly so. Have you counted the cost of following Jesus? Have you completely surrendered to His desire for your life? And, will you renounce all for the sake of His reality in your life?
