Based on Luke 14:28, we see that following Jesus (that is, being his disciple) involves cost. In fact, Jesus says that we should consider (count) the cost before we begin to follow him. While it would be to discuss the various “costs” of following Jesus, this is not the purpose of this post.
Instead, consider that part of being a disciple of Jesus is making disciples. Thus, following Jesus includes helping others follow him. It follows, then, that there is cost involved in helping others follow Jesus (i.e., making disciples).
So, what are some of the “costs” associated with helping other people follow Jesus?
