What’s the cost of following Jesus? It’s mostly things we don’t want to do, and our flesh rebels at the notion. For it involves intentionally making choices of self-denial…of giving up oneself and our interests to serve others. It also means sacrificially suffering in order to acquire a more deep abiding relationship with our Savior. But within the cost of following Jesus are also many precious workings of the Holy Spirit. There’s the sweet fellowship of faith with the Lord…the honor found in sharing in His suffering…and the humbling action of exemplifying His life in ours.
