Faith Reflections: Knowing the Cost...

Too often, we think of doing something for someone else, but then when we realize what it will cost us, many times we decide not to do it, because the cost will be too high... either it will take too much money or too much time or will take away from our popularity with others or... well, you get the picture.

But not Jesus... he knew the cost... Jesus knew his journey to Jerusalem would cost him everything he could give... he knew he would be welcomed into the city as a conquering hero... but then that he would be betrayed and deserted by his friends... that he would be arrested and beaten and humiliated... and that he would die... Jesus knew the cost, and went anyway...

Thank God, Jesus decided that we were worth the cost!!
