Yes, there is a cost to discipleship, but what we gain in the place of the things we give up is infinitely better.
- The disciple is the one to whom God reveals more as that individual drinks in His every Word, marking the inflection of His voice with the desire to obey.
- The disciple is the one who lives the Christian life in all its fullness, receiving all God has for him.
- To the disciple, each new day is a fresh opportunity to walk with God.
- To the disciple, life has definite purpose and direction. It is life abundant.
It costs to follow Jesus Christ, but it costs more not to. If you are settling for anything short of discipleship, you are missing out.
