Everybody wants to have things. A wise man will count the cost before trying to acquire things. And if something cost too much and can’t afford it, all we can do is dream about it. Or like foolish people, they will buy it and find out they can’t afford it, will have to sell it. And if we find out we can’t afford it and buy it anyway, it may destroy us. I know people that got into so much debt, it all most destroyed their life. They had to dig their way out of the hole they made. Counting the cost applies to everything in life. We walk through this world trying to acquire things to satisfy ourselves. Only to find out that things don’t satisfy us. I have seen people come to a point in their life where they are on the brink of destruction. And they see what Jesus has to offer and turn away. They see what it cost and aren’t willing to pay the price. Although they will pay the price in the end. What is the cost of Christianity? Good Question. The cost of Christianity is dying to oneself. Yes, just as Jesus died on the cross, we must die to ourselves. So that God can raise us up unto righteousness. The most heinous thing to us as humans is death. And it is the one thing that people fear the most. But death is the only thing that will actually save us from this world and it’s destruction. So, we must muster the courage and pay the cost of Christianity. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).
