Promise of the Cost of Discipleship

Promise of the Cost of Discipleship

Passage: Luke 18:18-30

Speaker: Brad Clayton

Series: Standing on the Promises

We sometimes think of our faith as a path to happiness, a path to abundance, a ticket to God's good favor. Yet God did not promise that life would be easy for those who believe. Jesus Christ often told His disciples that following Christ would require sacrifice. Discipleship requires us to give, and it may even require us to face hardship. To follow Jesus Christ in a culture that follows its own path means we will swim against the stream. But that hardship is evidence that we are following God's will and not our own.
