Cost Of Christianity

And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head. Luke 9:58

Are you really a disciple of Christ? Are you truly living for God or living for the world? Jesus gives us three harsh statements about what it truly means to be a Christian. At first your probably offended but when you truly think about what Jesus is teaching us it makes sense

First statement is about the lack of need for this world. We see so called Christian preachers living in mansions and driving fancy cars, is this what Jesus taught us? No prosperity gospel is a doctrine of Satan. God tells us anyone who loves this world is an enemy of God

Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but you go and preach the kingdom of God. Luke 9:60

Second statement seems even harsher, however when you truly believe and understand Jesus is the resurrection, Jesus is the Living Water, then it makes sense. We serve a God of the living not the dead, our souls don’t die because through Christ we have been giving eternal life. So the dead, who are those who reject Christ, let them mourn their death. Because we have victory through Jesus Christ who tasted death for us

 

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 9:62

And finally the third harsh statement, many of us want to be part time Christians. We want to worship Go d when it’s convenient but not interfere with our lifestyles. Jesus clearly is telling us were either all in or nothing. We can’t walk with God and hold hands with Satan. We must learn to be willing to sacrifice and be obedient to God

Now before you beat yourself up, if were being honest, were all guilty of these things. Jesus is teaching us what it takes to be a true disciple. The important thing is we truly in our heart strive to be what God calls us to be. When we fall, don’t give up on yourself, because God hasn’t given up on you either in Jesus Name Amen
