Counting The Cost

Luke 14:28 “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?”

My thoughts: It’s not that the cost is too high, but many have willingness that is too low. Yes, there is a price paid in being a follower of Christ. We must give up our way for His Way! Everyone can afford the cost of submission, just not everyone wants to pay it. Some of us are trying to build a Kingdom we haven’t even surrender to! Many like the idea of doing something for God, yet tremble at the cost of surrender to Him. There is no easy way into this Kingdom. God is looking for people who will finish what they started for His Kingdom and not back out when opposition comes. Temporary workers won’t make it in this Kingdom. They will soon be replaced by people willing to pay the price. Let us count the cost and remember that Jesus is worth it all.
