How much does it cost to follow Jesus? Don’t get me wrong, God’s love does not cost us anything. It is a free gift and we don’t have to pay or do anything for it.
But every day we get to decide how we are going to follow Jesus. The gospel this week challenges us to “take up our cross” and follow Jesus. What does that mean to you? What does that look like? Peter tries to stop Jesus from telling people about his coming death and resurrection but Jesus isn’t having it. He tells Peter, “Get behind me Satan.” In other words, follow me instead of thinking about what you want.
It can be a challenge to follow Jesus sometimes. We may be called on to step into difficult places where injustice exists. This takes a risk. How about you? Is it hard to follow Jesus sometimes? Hear more on YouTube and Spotify.
