WHAT'S THE PRICE TAG?
How much will it cost you to be a disciple?
Therefore, you have to recognize who truly owns your stuff.
RECOGNIZING TRUE VALUE
-What is the definition of true ownership? It means that you get to keep it forever.
If that is true, then you own nothing but your salvation and faith.
-How much of your stuff do you get to keep?
All of your stuff is on loan from God. A true disciple will receive an inheritance from God- an eternal reward.
"He is no fool, who gives up what he cannot keep in order to gain what he cannot lose." ~Jim Elliot
You cannot keep your stuff.
You cannot lose your eternal reward for following Christ.
