The Cost of Being a Disciple

Luke14:25 Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to them, [26] “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. (a lesser love)[27] Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. (Self denial, a willingness to obey, serve one another and suffer-perhaps even die-for his sake, hating one’s own life)[28] For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and (count the cost,) whether he has enough to complete it? [29] Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, [30] saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.' (Only those willing to carefully assess the cost and invest all they have in His Kingdom were worthy to enter.)

Mark 8:38 If whoever Is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels. (those who reject the demands of discipleship prove themselves to be ashamed of Jesus Christ and the truth He taught thus not redeemed from sin at all)
 
Matthew 7:13 Enter through the narrow gate; (Christ continually emphasized the difficulty of following Him. Salvation is by Grace, but it is not easy. It calls for knowledge of the truth, repentance, submission to Christ as LORD and a willingness to obey His will and word)
John 4:35 You know the saying, 'Four months between planting and harvest.' But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe* for harvest 36:The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike!37:You know the saying, 'One plants and another harvests.' And it's true.38:I sent you to harvest where you didn't plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest."
 

      


 


 The belief that does not save is the belief that does not change the person who believes. Jesus said that if you believe in Him, you would be changed
