It Costs Something

Matthew 8: 18-22 – 18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side. 19 Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.” 20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” 21 Then another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

As you read throughout the New Testament, Jesus repeatedly tells his disciples and followers that following Him would cost them something. Some may be discouraged by that point, but if you put things into perspective, you will see that the benefits of what one receives (salvation) far outweighs any cost of being obedient. Yes, following Jesus may cost us something, but not following Him will cost us even more.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
