It costs something to learn about Christ. It costs a lot to live like Christ.
- It costs something to join a few thousand men at a conference to sing praises to God and learn how we should live; it costs a lot to come home and remain committed to the changes you said you’d make in your life.
- It costs something to avoid Playboy magazines; it costs a lot to control your eyes and mind daily.
- It costs something to send your child to Christian school so others can teach your children about God; it costs a lot to have regular family devotions, complete with Dad leading worship songs and heartfelt prayer.
- It costs something to insist that your kids dress modestly; it costs a lot to make them think modestly and nicely.
So where do you stand? Are you comfortable? Do you have a broad tolerance of sin in your behavior? Has your approach to God led to a high level of mixture in your life?
