Sabbath: The cost of Discipleship — 10 Comments

  1. Indeed many have heard and even read about the cost of descipleship thinking it was an experience for desciples during Christ's time and in the early church. No wonder many today are finding it difficult when faced with calamities that call surrender to Christ or worldly gain such as Sabbath keeping or going for work on the Sabbath. Only when we realise that in Jesus Christ we have our whole being are we going to be His true followers!

  2. The cost of discipleship is almost an oxy-moron. If we are truly in love with Jesus Christ, whatever we go thru is worth the effort to stay close to Him. In that is salvation. Whatever we go thru here on earth is nothing when compared to our lives in heaven with Him. Like the man in the Bible, he sold all to obtain what he valued most.

  3. For one to be Christ's disciple, it is imminent that one fully knows the Saviour. It is only then that you can pay the cost of discipleship since you will have understood what Christ did for you and me and therefore willing even to die for him just like the men and women of old. Your focus will always be the heavenly reward and not on earthly possession.

  4. In cost of discipleship, one should expect any form of temptation but our focus should be in Christ Jesus.

  5. Remember, He said "My yoke is easy and My burden is light".
    Focus on Jesus, not the cross you will be given. Jesus will tailor your cross for you so that you can bear it, even joyfully. And how can we really bear it? . . . Jesus is carrying us as we carry our crosses.

  6. Considering what Christ had done for us it should be a forgone conclusion that we should not seek after worldly treasures but for the heavenly treasures that our Savior has promised us.We have to remember He bore it all at the Cross.
