Consider the Cost

“God Is Faithful” Today – February 3rd

“No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”(Luke 9:62).)

Consider the Cost
by Larry Burkett

Service to Jesus Christ is demanding. It may actually mean that we will have to work as hard for God’s kingdom as we do for earthly riches or, perish the thought, even harder.

Few salespeople consider it an imposition on their time to talk about their product line. Being a success at anything requires dedication, training, and perseverance.

It would be a very foolish company that trained its sales force to expect success on every call. Just one turndown and they would give up, considering themselves failures.

Jesus knew that not everybody would serve God, and most might not even want to. Some would like to have a foot in both worlds. They are willing to be called Christians, provided they can pick the times and places to serve.

However, Jesus Christ said that only total service to God would yield peace and blessings within His will.

“What will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul?” (Matthew 16:26).
