Salvation and discipleship, says Tony Ponicke, are inseparable – they go together. Tony goes on to explore many Scripture verses to illustrate that while salvation is a free gift, it costs us everything as we surrender all to the Lord. The first cost of following Christ can be the loss of relationships – not all of our families and friends will like it when we become Christians. Then there is the cost of our material goods and finances as we surrender those to Christ. Not that it is a bad thing to have money and possessions, but we must hold everything very loosely and in submission to Jesus. Also, our worldly pleasures and leisure activities must be laid at the foot of t the cross. We need to humble our hearts and live totally surrendered to the will and purposes of God.
