Consider the Cost

Description

The reality is that with the Christian life, there is a relational cost, a time cost and even a financial cost.

For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost... (Luke 14:28).

THINK

When Jesus called the people around Him, He didn’t pull any punches. He didn’t promise that life would be easy. In fact, He told them it would be a challenge. He told them there would be a cost.

When we begin to walk with Christ, and to truly grow spiritually, we must consider the cost as well. Because the reality is that with the Christian life, there is a relational cost, a time cost and even a financial cost. The great news, though, is that the benefits we receive—joy, forgiveness, peace, and the blessing of a relationship with God—far outweigh any cost we may encounter!

Have you considered the cost of following Christ? Are you getting the most out of the benefits of those costs?

PRAY

Pray that God will help you understand the true cost of following Him and that you can see past the cost to the benefits beyond.

ACT

Consider the time cost of following Jesus. Commit time each day to praying, reading the Bible and journaling what God is doing in your life.
