what’s the cost?

I heard a great song today for the first time.  I’m not sure of the name.  There was this one statement in the song that leaped out as I heard it, “I’ll go anywhere at any cost for my King.”  As I heard that I wrote it down and sat there and pondered those words.  Do we as a church really believe that?  Do we really know what that means? And do we live those words out?  Do I? 

We started a new series at church called “Dominate” based on the Book of Acts in Chapter 1.  What a soul stirring message… a convicting message.  The Good News is not safe.  We are in a fight.  Yet Jesus tells us in Matthew 16:18, “the gates of hell will not prevail against it” [the church].

 I have made some moves in my life in following God that have cost me a lot!!  I often wonder how has God received glory from those things… in the wake of it all – there has been alot brokenness and separation.  The amazing thing about God is His never ending love and grace and that He keeps calling.   

Read what it cost Paul in 2 Corinthians 11:23-28.

To illustrate how the Gospel is not safe Michael quoted Erwin McManus, How could we ever think the Christian faith would be safe when its central metaphor is an instrument of death?”
