Is Following Christ Really Worth It? (Mark 8:34-38)
The call to follow Christ is the call to give up your life. (v34)
Four reasons why following Christ is worth it...
1) Clinging to this life (for yourself) amounts to loss, but giving up this life (for Christ) is gain. (v35)
2) If you gain everything at the expense of eternal life, you gain nothing. (v36)
3) You cannot buy back eternal life once it's lost. (v37)
4) If you're ashamed of Christ in this life, he'll be ashamed of you in the next. (v38)
