In God’s economy salvation and discipleship are two different things. Salvation is a free a gift. Eternal life is given to us when we simply believe God’s promise for eternal life.
For many of us becoming a believer and following Christ is a new way of life. We have grown accustom to living our lives as we wish and wanting God to cosign it.
However, Christ bids us to become a follower of him, but He makes it very clear that following him should not be taken in a casual manner. He is plain speaking to his disciples when he communicates that following him has a cost, a commitment, and, a crown for those of us who are his disciples.
