Following Jesus, At All Cost

Reading Time: 3 minutes

There are costs to do every activity in life.  Each endeavor costs us time, money, and other opportunities.  There is limited time and resources in life.  Those resources will run out. When we follow Jesus it will be at all cost.

Pickup Your Cross and Follow Jesus

If I choose to watch a football game, it is costing me the opportunity to do another activity.  If I am hired at one job full time, I can’t be hired at their competitor doing the same thing.  I can’t agree to every opportunity that comes along because I would run out of one of these resources.

In our limited resources that we have, what will you be spending them on?  What matters to you in this life enough to spend your resources on?  What, will it cost you to follow and serve the Lord?

Our Identity

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our identity is a topic that many are discussing today. It seems that many are confused as to who they are. Many do not seem comfortable in their own skins. Let’s look at what God says our identity is.

Our Identity

Teenage years are an awkward time. I experimented with many things as I was growing up. My ultimate search was looking for truth and who I was.  As I struggled in looking for my identity, I was confused at times and often made the wrong decisions.

4 Reasons There is No Time for Sin
