No Fine Print…

“In preaching the Gospel, there should be no fine print in the contract.” – Steve Lawson

Jesus said, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” – Luke 14:26

Our love for Him should be so powerful that our love for all others, even for our own life, should seem like hate in comparison!

Telling people that their decision for Christ will make for a peaceful, trouble free life ignores Christ’s own words:

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” – John 15:18-19

And in John 16:33: “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome* the world.

*νικάω nikao – to conquer, prevail, get the victory

There should be no fine print. The followers of Christ must “count the cost.” – Luke 14:28-15
