The High Price of Discipleship

The High Price of Discipleship

Passage: Matthew 10:34-42

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Shannon

Series: Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

Category: Expository Book Study

With Chapter 10 drawing to a close, Jesus gives his final instructions to the twelve disciples before they go out on their first missionary journey without him. The warning Jesus gives them is that he did not come to bring peace to earth, but a sword. The gospel by nature divides people even those who live under the same roof together. The presence of Christ will always demand a decision. The high cost of discipleship calls us to take up our crosses daily and live a life that is committed to the glory of God, even if our family stands in the way of that. When we put our love for Jesus above everyone else, he declares us to be worthy in his sight.
