Following Jesus

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 4

Luke 9:57  (ID: 2132)

To follow Christ involves great cost. In Luke 9, we read of three individuals who encounter Jesus but refuse to follow Him in favor of other priorities. Genuine discipleship, however, leaves no room for excuse, compromise, or half-heartedness. Alistair Begg warns that there is a great danger in putting off our response to Jesus’ call, for we never know when we will have the opportunity to hear it again.

The Cost of Following Jesus

57As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”
