Non-discipleship costs abiding peace, a life penetrated throughout by love, faith that sees everything in the light of God’s overriding governance for good, hopefulness that stands firm in the most discouraging of circumstances, power to do what is right and withstand the forces of evil. In short, non-discipleship costs you exactly that abundance of life Jesus said he came to bring!
There is a cost to discipleship, for sure, but the cost of non-discipleship is much greater! Choosing the path of non-discipleship means we forfeit the life Jesus said he came to bring. Which cost are you willing to pay?
