Teens’ Open Heavens 27 October 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Cost Of Discipleship

Topic: Cost Of Discipleship [Friday 27, October 2017]

Memorise: "And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple." - Luke 14:27

Read Luke 14:25-27

25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

MESSAGE:

Jesus, in Luke 14:27 said; "And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple." A Cross is a symbol of responsibility to say the least. It is a pointer to the fact that the path of discipleship is rugged and demanding. It demands a high level of determination to follow without looking back when faced with sufferings and temptations.

It is costly to follow Jesus Christ for many reasons. Firstly, He has a yoke and whoever wants to follow Him must bear that yoke with Him. An example of this yoke is found in John 4:34 where Jesus said; "...My meat is to do the will of Him that sent me, and to finish His work." Whoever fails to share this burden with Jesus cannot be His disciple. Secondly, the one who wants to be a disciple of Christ must learn of Him, he must pattern His life after Christ's life and one major way to pattern one's life after Jesus Christ is to be meek and lowly in heart. Beloved, you have to know that discipleship has its price, but it is highly rewarding. Jesus Christ said, "...and ye shall find rest to your souls." (Mathew 11:29).

Prayer Point: Father, help me to pay the cost of discipleship, so that I can gain immeasurable blessing of a genuine disciple.
