The cost of salvation.

A message to the fence sitters, the agnostics, the atheists, the unbelievers . Salvation is an option. But there is a cost either way. The rewards in one are infinite. In the other they are finite 
With Jesus, if you choose to follow Him, it is IN or OUT.

There are no ifs or buts.

It’s now rather than later. 

If you put it off, and then your life terminates abruptly, unless He sends a last chance angel, you have missed the proverbial ‘boat’ 

In the verses below Yeshua does not give way on any procrastinatory statements of putting off till tomorrow what you can do today. 

Luke 9:57-62
The Cost of Discipleship

Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.”
And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”
Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”
But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”
Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”
And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.”
But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

When shocked Evangelist Daniel Kolenda asked the Lord why He would not let the man bury his father, Jesus asked him a question. 

‘Who told you that he was dead ? ‘

Many are called but few are chosen. 
Let me put my kids through school. No follow me now 
Wait to get my pension. no follow me now

Luke 9:23

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized during the life time of the opportunity leonard ravenhill
We don’t have the extra hour
2 Corinthians 6:2

For He says:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you,

And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
If you hear his voice do not harden your hearts 
Three strikes and you are out! 
Inspired by the Daniel Kolenda Altar call at Atlanta Gospel Crusade last night
