The 3-Part Cost
Main point summary
Discourse
The 3-Part Cost
Hate everything that revolves around you. Willingly walk the road of suffering. Renounce all that you possess. This is the cost of discipleship. So we learn from Jesus in Luke 14:25-33. With "great crowds" following, Jesus has decided that it is time to sift for true disciples, and does so by plainly laying out the cost. The first cost of discipleship—hatred toward our own families and lives. "Own" is the key word here and we see what a refusal to hate our own at the invitation of Jesus looks like in the parable that proceeds our text. ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ Such lovers of their own cannot be Jesus' disciples, while the poor and crippled and blind and lame from the streets can (Luke 14:15-24). The second demand of discipleship is a willingness to walk the road of suffering. Let us not deceive ourselves. There is no getting around it—whoever does not bear his own cross is not learning from Jesus. Finally, to complete the sketch of discipleship's cost, Jesus turns to finances. Sit down, Jesus instructs, and see if you are willing to invest what the discipleship project demands . For while Jesus is the one who pays the price in full to make us his disciples (hallelujah!), this does not mean that nothing is required from us. On the contrary, unless we renounce all our own possessions as now belonging to him, we cannot be his disciples.
