Have you ever tried to buy something only to realize you hadn't considered the cost? It's embarrassing, for sure. But what many people don't realize is this happens to us spiritually, too. Today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe is going to remind us that it actually costs us something when we follow Jesus. Today's message is one of those hard passages of Scripture. It's one of those "Ouch! That hurts!" sayings of Jesus where He is teaching us how to count the cost as authentic followers. The title is, Counting the Cost.
