Text: Luke 14: 25-35
Great crowds were following Jesus. He didn’t turn and encourage them or try to hold on to their affection but rather gave them one of the most challenging charges we see from Jesus: “Count the cost” “Take up your cross”. While the grace of the Gospel was won by Christ and there is certainly nothing we can do to earn it, following Christ will cost us greatly. So, what is the cost of following Christ? What is the reward? This is the weight of Luke 14.
