No disrespect to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who wrote The Cost of Disicpleship, but Christians are called to more than mere discipleship. We are indeed called to embrace the cost of discipleship
Let’s put God’s absolute authority underneath that song like a rock foundation, so that you don’t feel that song just as poetic sentiment or musical pleasure alone, but as unshakable reality.

“There is no doubt in my heart for I knew God was with me, and however He chose to use me I am willing to serve.”
In life we face many different struggles, and with each struggle we must know the value of Love, Faith, Wisdom and Hope. For without it, we will never achieve or be able to overcome the most unreasonable struggle of all and that is "Sin" itself. God has given us the tools to use in order to be faithful all that we do, and he continue to lead us on a positive and creative path.
Living Word of Life!
“What this pandemic did is sort of show me how we need to get our priorities in order,” said Pastor LT Mabry of St. Paul MB Church. “From here on out, my priorities will be to serve the people … We have got to meet the needs of our communities whatever it be.”
Churches around the country are wrestling with the issue of how to re-engage regular churchgoers whose attendance has trailed off during the pandemic. In September, LifeWay Research found most pastors said their congregation had less than 70 percent of its pre-COVID crowds.

My listeners peppered me with questions, and we discussed them one by one. Most often I asked them a question in return, and they found themselves answering their own questions based on what they'd already learned. Sometimes I said, "That will be answered in an upcoming story."
I don't think I'm the only one who longs to have answers. As leaders, sometimes we're expected to know what to say and what to do. Throughout Paige's struggle, I wanted to be able to assure her that it was going to get better and easier; I wanted to believe that, if we prayed about it enough, it would be so.
"Now it’s about proving that Kanye is the employer and the buck stops with him. Now that there’s others coming forward, then the complaint will be amended and be bigger in scope. No one knows how involved Kanye himself was, if he knew what was going on, as it was all so last minute, it was terribly ran. Whether it was mismanagement, accidental, or on purpose, this is a very strong case," one of the sources added.
Warren, a famous author and evangelical pastor in California who founded Saddleback Church, said in a statement, which he posted on social media: "This is the very kind of cultural and racial insensitivity that we're trying to eradicate in our church family. It's unchristlike, demeaning and it's never appropriate to use a stereotype to teach."
"I think the fact that I've been able to turn my life around and really make my mom proud and become a better person through focusing on my faith, it always gives me great sense of pride to come home," Wahlberg told People.
While "Breakthrough" is an overtly Christian film, Franklin said it will resonate with all audiences because everyone - regardless of their faith or background - experiences struggles.
"He is much better today! The surgery went even better than expected and he will be released in a few days. Things were quite serious for a day but he is strong and tough and he is on the road to recovery! Thank you for your prayers for us!"
Prominent Christian blogger Archbishop Cranmer criticized the church for "rejoicing in both, eulogizing both, solemnizing both, glorifying both, honoring both" and questioned this "sensitively missional" approach, saying that exalting Muhammad in churches suggests that Muhammad is greater than Jesus.
