Matthew 8:18-22: The Cost of Following Jesus

Jesus commands people to follow Him, but what type of “following” does he mean? What level of commitment or discipleship is enough? In this passage, Jesus seems to reject two individuals who each publicly pledge their loyalty to Him. His response to them tells us a great deal about the Gospel of Jesus. Being a disciple of Jesus if not what we might expect and Jesus encourages us to count the cost. Have you considered the cost of following Jesus?
