You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. 1 Corinthians 7:23
What does it cost to be a Christian? Some might say you just repeat a few word and boom your in the Kingdom of God. But those who believe this don’t understand the transformation that takes place when you become Born Again. They don’t understand the conviction of your sin that pierces the soul and melts the old heart of stone
See becoming a Christian will cost you everything! You were bought with a price, the price is the blood of Jesus Christ. You will have to give up your old life, your old way, your old sins, you wont put in a new cell phone in an old case cover. You wont bake a new cake and put it in a used cake box, you wont You wont build a new house and put in old drywall…point is you don’t put your New Self into an old corrupted body
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. Matthew 16:24
Jesus told us the price to follow him, give up everything! Sin is self-gratification, if you deny yourself your probably going to sin a lot less. If you deny yourself, maybe you will have time to think about God and your Neighbor instead of yourself.
Take up your cross daily, meaning suffering and persecution. Follow Christ on the narrow path not the broad way to hell like the rest of the world. You were bought with a price, the blood of Jesus Christ, the only way to eternal life Amen!
