In life, we understand there is a price to be paid for every decision, every action, every word we utter. Throughout our lives, we will determine the cost. The wise person will count the cost and consider the price to be paid, before the tally at the end.
He paid a price He didn’t owe,
For a debt I couldn’t pay.
His blood flowed like a fountain,
Washed in that stream I was unbound.
In return He lovingly bade
me give my life to Him
As a living sacrifice follow
His lead along life’s narrow way.
“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37 For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:35-38 (NASB)
