Following Yahshua:  What is the Cost?

 

Then said Jesus unto His disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.  What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?  Mark 8:34-38 (KJV)

 

Requirements for Yahshua’s disciples:

Self –Denial

Take up his cross  

Follow Yahshua

Result of hanging onto one’s life:

Life will be lost

Gaining the world, but loss of soul

There is nothing man can give in exchange for his soul

Result for losing one’s life for Yahshua’s sake:

One’s life will be found 

 

When His disciples heard it (see Matthew 19:16-30), they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with GOD all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto Him, behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

 Jesus said unto them, verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His Glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.  Everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my Name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life (Matthew 19:25-29) KJV

Regeneration:  New: The restoration of all things (brought into a new life by the Glorious plan of salvation by YHVH  GOD through His Holy Son, Yahshua ha Mashiach).
