Count The Cost is just a short article to explain that we need to give Jesus total Lordship over our lives to build a rock-solid spiritual foundation.
“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”1 Corinthians 3:11
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and through Him, we can have life in abundance.
He is also our Good Shepherd and the Door of the Sheep.
We have no access to the Father, except through Jesus, and we cannot build strong foundations in our spiritual lives without Him.
“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him”Luke 14:28-29
When we sit down and plan the cost to build our spiritual foundations, we need to know that the only solid foundation we can lay is Jesus Christ, without Him we will not be able to finish building and be mocked by those watching us.
When we start serving God through Christ we will need to lay down certain things.
That is why Jesus said we must count the cost – what will the cost be to serve Him.
When we serve Him we will face persecution and will need to lay down some things like habits, the wrong lifestyle, relationships, etc.
Knowing these things are only temporary and when we persevere we will receive eternal life will help us to get the right mindset in these things.
