It is Costly!

Pray today that we are willing to pay the cost of true Christianity. Soren Kierkegaard believed that Christianity – true Christianity is costly, and it demands our total loyalty to Jesus. He was speaking out against a Christianity that is made to be more palatable, more popular and to be and sound less offensive than it really is. Let’s pray today that this is our heart and actions. Too many preachers and churches have watered this down to make the message of Jesus and following him look more enjoyable and bring more blessing into your life. But we forget as we preach and live that we have an enemy that has no other desire than to destroy us. Jesus even said he was a murderer, a liar, someone who is out to crush us. So, I don’t think selling a Christianity that promises an easy life or looks pretty to the pretty outside world looking in, should be preached, or lived out among the people we are trying to win to Jesus. Loyalty is a must, a loyalty to obey his commandments. “If you love me, obey my commandments.” John 14:15. The cost can take away all that we have, especially when we let certain things in our lives or certain people become the idols we worship in front of God. Let’s pray today that God can have all of us, living loyally today to the mission of making disciples that Jesus plainly laid out for us.
