Following Jesus Is Costly



I am not sure I agree with this anymore.

Getting out of bed is costly.

Growing up is costly

Making decisions is costly


I can say over all I have gotten more out my spiritual travels than I have put in.


I know some have been and are persecuted but to state cost as universal ????

Coming to this late but I have found that following Christ is costly. As I go deeper into practice and be more obedient to spiritual things the cost is my own creature comforts because of the realization that I cannot sit on the sidelines if life in this broken world. Getting over myself is learning to serve others. That is a hard thing to let go of the "I" I thought I was and realize there is no "I" but the Christ or Buddha nature which masquerades itself as "me".
