The Cost Of Following Jesus


Shared From Dlike

Hello Fellow Steemians!!!

Sometimes It’s Tough Following God with reckless abandon isn’t always easy or comfortable. In fact, sometimes it’s downright tough! The issue isn’t how many miracles you’ll experience or what kind of trials you’ll encounter. The issue always remains total obedience.

Following Christ with reckless abandon requires great cost and sacrifice. That’s why Jesus never pulled any punches when he talked with those who followed him. He let them know the cost would be high. 

Following God in total obedience may cost you some friends, some parties, and some dreams. In fact, you probably don’t know the full cost yet of following him. But do know this: The eternal rewards will far outweigh the temporary earthly cost! 

When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake. 19 Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”

Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

- Matthew 8:18-20

New International Version

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.

- 2 Thessalonians 1:5

New International Version 

Pray It! 

Tell God you’re ready to count the cost and follow him with reckless abandon. Be blessed and keep on smiling whenever and wherever you are. Have a great day everyone! God bless us all and again thank you for your time.🙂
