“Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace.”
Count the cost!
If you don’t value godliness very highly in your life, then you’ll find that even if you set godly goals for yourself, eventually you’ll decide that the cost is too high. So the Lord is saying to you today as he did on the day he spoke these words in Palestine: “count the cost” (NKJV).
As you think about what you believe God wants to accomplish in your life, what would need to happen in your life for that to become reality? Are you willing for those things to happen? God will help you, but you must choose.
