The Cost of Discipleship: The Third Sunday after Pentecost

Jun 30, 2019

By: The Reverend Bill Nesbit

To be a disciple of Jesus is not a position of power, it is a position of grace. One of the hardest parts about being a follower of Jesus is remembering that truth. And acting that way.
The Scripture references are 2 Kings 2:1-2,6-14, Psalm 77:1-2,11-14, and Galatians 5:1,13-25. The Gospel reference is Luke 9:51-62.
