The Cost OF Being A Disciple!

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Guest Blogger Evangelist Mike Bell explains what Jesus taught about being a disciple.

Some Speakers Today Are Missing The Mark!


There are a lot of Christian leaders who focus on “getting people saved” but neglect to teach people how to live life as a Christian. While they have good intentions, they are not following the Bible if they do not emphasize the cost of being a disciple of Jesus, as he himself did. Luke 14:27-33


Jesus Taught About The Cost Of Being A Disciple


Jesus didn’t “water down” his message to gain more followers. He did not give in to the temptation of teaching an “easy” word to please the crowd. Jesus was wholly focused on serving God and expected His disciples to have the same attitude.

He explained the high cost of being a disciple. Jesus taught that to be His disciple; they could let nothing stand in their way, even their own life. He invited them (twice) to first sit down and count the cost of being a disciple, lest they start, and not finish, and everyone who sees begins to mock them. If they did not intend to follow through, they would be better off not even starting.

Jesus Stated Some Strong Words For Being A Disciple

Stated briefly, whoever of you who doesn’t renounce all that he has, he can’t be my disciple. There was also another occasion when Jesus turned away a crowd that was not well motivated to serve God. John 6:26-66 From that time, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. We now, more than ever, need to repent and then turn from our evil, wicked ways. Let today be the day for real change!


Will People Know You Are A Disciple of Christ


You NEVER have to advertise a Fire – Live a Life ABLAZE for the Glory of God
