Since we only do what we want to do, we consider some of the reasons why we should be willing to pay whatever it costs to trust and follow Jesus:

  • because we owe it to Him. 
  • because this is what He commands us to do. 
  • because He has the authority to require this of us. 
  • because of the blessings we will gain in this life if we do. 
  • because life is short. 
  • because the world is worthless, but heaven is valuable. 
  • because there is a coming Day of Judgment, which we have every reason to fear if we don’t trust and follow Jesus.

There is a Heaven to gain, and a Hell to avoid. We are challenged to consider these things and let them motivate us to believe on Jesus and follow Him.
