Do you like free stuff?
There is a story in Samuel where King David has been disobedient to God. So he finds a place to build an altar to sacrifice to God and the man who owns the space offers it to David for free.
But David says: ‘No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.’ 2 Samuel 24v24
So here’s a question: Does following Jesus in everyday life cost you nothing? Should it?
Sometimes I might say I’m a follower of Jesus or sing great songs in church, but my life looks no different from anyone else.
What are you prepared to sacrifice?
