Luke 14:25-33

“Counting the Cost”

Christianity includes crosses, and not just the gold ones we wear around our necks. Jesus tells the crowds that discipleship is about commitment and comes with costs.  How do we consider and acknowledge the costs and commitments that come with discipleship?  What would it mean to live our lives oriented toward this calling?  Why would we choose a life like this?  Why would Jesus ask us to do so?
