FEB 22 – COST

02/22 Luke 14:27-32
And you cannot be my disciple if you do not carry your own cross and follow me. 28 “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first getting estimates and then checking to see if there is enough money to pay the bills? 29 Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of funds. And then how everyone would laugh at you! 30 They would say, ‘There’s the person who started that building and ran out of money before it was finished!’ 31 “Or what king would ever dream of going to war without first sitting down with his counselors and discussing whether his army of ten thousand is strong enough to defeat the twenty thousand soldiers who are marching against him? 32 If he is not able, then while the enemy is still far away, he will send a delegation to discuss terms of peace.
COST
A call to Jesus is a call to follow. He is exclusive in that His way is the way of life. Christ is exclusive because His way is the only way. Jesus is alive and His life guarantees our life. Go to Jesus and give Him your life and He will give it back to you whole and victorious.
