As we look at what it really means to be committed to Jesus, Pastor Ford asks us to consider this question—Are we paying the price that it takes to follow the Lord Jesus Christ? Because there is a cost associated with following Him, and it includes self-sacrifice. Have you begun to pick up your cross, die daily, and follow Him?
