The cost of following Jesus
Verse 44: “He sold all he had”. Verse 46: “He went away and sold everything he had”.

The idea that we might give up everything we have in order to follow Jesus – well that’s just insanity.
Many people today are glad to be involved in church. Come along on a Sunday. Maybe even take some responsibilities and make themselves helpful. Maybe even give some money to support the work of the church.
