Last Sunday's Sermon

The Cost of Following Jesus

Following Jesus is not easy, because He asks us to subordinate everything that competes with our love for Him. Our problem begins when we think that we can only follow Him with our imperfect love. When Jesus invites us to follow him, it is an invitation to give up our selfish love to receive his perfect love and when we do so that is when we find true happiness and eternal life.

Application Questions:

1. Why does Jesus want you to understand that to follow Him starts by loving Him the most?
2. How does the pursuit of your own happiness without Jesus can become an obstacle to follow him?
3. Why might not following Jesus be the greatest cost for an aspiring disciple?
