Yes, I want to follow Jesus. I am a follower of Jesus. I still have questions. What do you think? God , the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus , the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried , and rose from the dead according to the Bible.
If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, " Jesus is Lord ," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven. What is your response? Read More. What are the examples of biblical discipleship? Did they sacrifice?

Having this as an unresolved issue forced them to abandon the mission field and move back home as soon as their elderly parents needed care. They left before resolving serious issues in their family relationships. I can assure you of this: If a missionary family launches out with unresolved issues in their mar- riage and relationships, the mission field will expose those problems.
The pressures of personal issues can create so much stress on a family that it disrupts their ability to minister effectively and can even lead to the dissolution of the family. How did people respond to that event?
The Spurgeon Center | Counting the Cost
When that person announced his next project, did people believe or doubt him? It would be good for you to count the total cost — financial, physical, emotional — needed to complete the project you are planning to start.
