Following Jesus Involves Cost

On Sunday 4 November I shared that if we are truly following Jesus then this will involve the aspect of “cost”. I shared from Luke 14, where Jesus has been attracting large crowds.

Jesus is recorded as addressing the crowd and challenges them that if they want to be considered as His follower there is a cost factor involved. He outlines a story about planning to build a house or in some translations a tower. It involves siting down and counting the cost before construction starts so the building can be completed.

May we take time out of the busyness of life and reflect over what this cost factor may mean for us. Our lives are very much like that construction. The Lord is continuing to transform us into His likeness so that His light may brightly shine through us.
