Follow me and it will cost you! That's what Jesus said. Some chose to follow anyway, but others said the cost was more than they were willing to risk.
Following Jesus does come at a cost, but it also comes with benefits. You have to decide if the benefits are worth the cost. Honestly the only way you'll ever know for sure is to follow and see for yourself. After all, what do you have to lose - other than your own soul!
If you missed the conclusion to the Follow Me series you can see it here.
I ran across this short video of Christine Caine and thought it was very fitting as well. Following Jesus means we will have to learn to be in the world but not of the world.
