What’s your price?

Would you commit murder for $1000? A million dollars? A billion? If you would for any amount of money, we’re just haggling over price. So what’s your price? Or do you not have one, that you wouldn’t do it for any amount?

When it comes to following Jesus, He thought you were worth the price to die for, and He says we should count the cost before following Him. He asks everything of us, but gives us even more.

What speeding tickets and carry-on bags can teach us about repentance

Become God’s heroes

Every story has a hero. And guess what? God has a story for you, and YOU’RE the hero. Let that sink in for a minute. Seriously. You’re not just a sidekick, you’re Luke Skywalker.

What would’ve happened if Luke decided to turn his back on his story? What would’ve happened to the Rebellion? And your story is no different. Your story matters so much to God that the devil hates it. He’ll try to get you to sin. If he can’t do that, he’ll make you busy, so busy that you don’t even know there’s a story or that you’re in it.

Become God’s heroes. That’s why you’re here.
