The Gospel in 28 Days - Day 26

Count the cost thoughtfully. Take up your cross.

Jesus repeatedly stated that the cost of following Him involves a willingness to sacrifice all.
  • Come, take up the cross, and follow Me (Mark 10:21).
  • Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul (Mark 8:34-37)?
