The Cost of Discipleship
What is the cost of discipleship as found in the gospels? Does the cost of discipleship only cost something, or does it cost nothing less than everything, according to Jesus?
In this video, Dr. Pitre covers the narratives in Luke 9 of the 3 people who approach Jesus who express interest in following Jesus and becoming a disciple, but still are attached to things of this world.
And, the interesting fact about this narrative is that Jesus does not just reject those who are attached to bad things -- this would be expected -- but he claims that those who are attached to the good things of this world -- like family and land -- above him are not worthy of the kingdom.

Tim Staples - Material Possessions and Discipleship
Does Jesus call us to give up all material possessions to follow him? Tim Staples answers a caller on Catholic Answers Live.

The Tragic Cost of Non-Discipleship - David Platt
David Platt discusses the tragic cost of non-discipleship.
He says, "...the cost of discipleship is great. To live with radical abandonment for His glory, faithful adherence to His person, urgent obedience to His ministry—this is costly. This could cost us, or the people we lead, our lives. But I submit to you this morning that the cost of non-discipleship is far, far, far greater. The cost of non-discipleship is great for scores of people in the church sitting comfortably right now under the banner of Christianity, but have never counted the cost of following Christ—many eternally deceived.
There's great cost for all who settle for casual association with Jesus and miss out on the abu...
