the cost has been great…

From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: the costly stones

There are those of you who have heard Him call: Follow Me! The cost has been great. For some, it has cost careers. For some, houses and lands. For some, mothers or fathers, or brothers or sisters. Husbands or wives, children or grandchildren. For some, all of the above. Ministries and anointings and callings have been laid down. In order to follow Him. In His footsteps. In order to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. He has dealt with our possessions, our occupations, our relationships. Luke 14:16-33  “He that loveth these things more than me is not worthy of me”~ Jesus.  Matthew10:37  The sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, divides. Hebrews 4:12,13  If one person has decided to follow Jesus, and one person has decided to NOT follow Jesus, eventually a division will come. In the words of an old song: I have decided to follow Jesus. No turning back. No turning back. Though none go with me, yet I will follow. No turning back. No turning back.

Matthew 10:34-39   Matthew 19:27-29   Mark 10:29,30   Luke 14:16-33
