The High Cost of Following Jesus Christ

Following Jesus Christ has a price to be paid. According to Luke 14:27-33

"27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

31 “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand?32 If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace.33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples."

We should count the cost of our body,our heart and our mind in order to follow Jesus.This means that we should be ready to let go off all our body lust,and the lust of the heart and we should be able to control our thinking.
