CAMPFIRE WEEK 7 NOTES

CAMPFIRE STORIES | WORTH THE COST

 

44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.

45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. 

46 When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!Matthew 13:44-46

 

There is a COST when it comes to SERVING Jesus

 

HOW MUCH?

 

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23

Nothing WORTH HAVING comes easy

We need to AGREE to His TERMS

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33

We can’t LIVEfor the WORLD and JESUS at the same time

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24

 

3 STEPS TO TAKE IN COUNTING THE COST

  • TURN WHENINTO NOW.

 

(stop making excuses)

 

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:1

  • TURN INTENTIONSINTO ACTIONS.

 

(plans are great, but mean nothing if you don’t do something with them)

 

Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. James 4:17

  • TURN YOUR WHOLE HEARTTOWARD JESUS.

 

(don’t hold anything, I mean anything! From him)

 

When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” Mark 12:34

When HEAVEN is your audience, you LIVE differently

Our problems are different, our attitude is different, our hope, joy, peace, everything is different!

The COST of LIVING a LIFE for Jesus is WORTH IT!
