What does it cost to be a Christian ?

Question ; How much does it cost to be a Christian ?

Answer ; Everything…and nothing !

Consider …

In Revelations, Jesus admonishes us to buy from Him gold. What a curious thing. How could we possibly buy anything from the Lord ? What is currency for this purchase and what is the cost ?

In Luke Jesus speaks of the cost of following Him. He admonished us to consider it as one building a tower who should first sit down and calculate the cost. Otherwise, after laying the foundation (Christ, the rock), he will not be able to finish and all will ridicule him. How silly it is to start building and not give any thought to how much it will cost !

If we go to get food at the super market we first determine what we need to get based upon how much money we have to make the purchase. If we calculate the cost of such small things, how can we neglect so great a salvation ?

The cost my friends, is everything ! Everything you have and everything you are. And yet…I say the cost is NOTHING ! Nothing, because when you compare what you willingly give up in the midst of this evil and temporal world to that which the Lord will willingly lavish upon you, you will wonder at why you did not pay the full price sooner.

Have you ever seen a really great deal on something but walked away from it and then later became aggravated as to why you did not jump on that deal at once ? Let us not be so foolish with so great a salvation ! Yes, you may have been born again, but that is merely the beginning of the journey of true life. Why be born at all if you are not going to live ? Calculate the cost…pay the price and begin to really live !
