The cost of non-discipleship is great for scores of people in the church sitting comfortably right now under the banner of Christianity, but have never counted the cost of following Christ—many eternally deceived.
There’s great cost for all who settle for casual association with Jesus and miss out on the abundance and satisfaction and joy that he has designed for us. There’s a cost that comes to monotonous routine Christianity.
We focus on discipleship for the lost. We focus on discipleship in order to reach the people who haven’t heard. Discipleship and missions are not opposite strategies. They are the same.
