Is Discipleship All About Sacrifice?

Is Discipleship All About Sacrifice?

Ben Sternke:

As Dallas Willard has said, “The cost of non-discipleship is much higher than the cost of discipleship. Discipleship is a bargain.” In other words, Jesus isn’t talking about making a sacrifice because it’s the right thing to do, he’s talking about a sacrifice that actually becomes an investment that yields a return.

Following Christ is a challenge, but it is a challenge that gives you a great return. You are living the life you were meant to live. Anything in life worth doing is a sacrifice, but discipleship is one that has eternal rewards.
