The Stories He Told – Count The Cost

Luke 14.28-33

count the cost

Well it seems that for Jesus followers were easy to come by! A charismatic personality; just enough “bad guy” but religious as well; a new community to join; an escape from the mundane.. maybe worth trying out then. But Jesus notices all this and calls on the crowds to press “pause.” Count the cost before you sign up, he says. It’s not going to be as easy as you think! Surely he has given enough hints about this, but now he needs to thin the ranks. What would he say today?
