The Demands of Discipleship

The Demands of Discipleship

Welcome to October Chapel City Church! What a year this has been for all of us. As you move into a new month, please let us know how we can be praying for you or ministering to you. We understand that with constant uncertainty can come additional burdens, be they financial, emotional, or spiritual. We would love the opportunity to pray with you and for you, and to remind you of the precious truths found in God’s Word. In Chapter 8 and 9 of Matthew we are reminded of the great power and authority of Jesus Christ over all aspects of creation. Last week we saw three miracles, and this week we have a response to those miracles. Two men approach Jesus and claim that they are ready to follow Him. His answer helps us to understand something about the demands of discipleship, and the cost of following after Christ.

And a scribe came up and said to him, “Teacher, 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.” Matthew 8:19-20
