Everything Worth Having Comes With a Cost

by Andrew Forrest

There is a phrase I say to myself, when confronted with something hard: “cross before crown.”

See, everything worth having comes with a cost.

In today’s reading, Jesus explains that even the Messiah is not exempt from this principle: it’s Cross before Crown for Jesus, too.

And the more valuable the crown, the more painful the cross.

What cross do you need to pick up today?

Today’s Scripture:

Luke 9:18-27
