Faith always costs us something. It’s never close to what it’s worth, but it’s always all we can afford. Faith costs us everything, but in return, gives us more (exceedingly so) than we deserve.
…unless we clearly see the superiority of what we receive as His [Christ] students over every other thing that might be valued, we can not succeed in our discipleship to him. We will not be able to do the things required to learn his lessons and move ever deeper into a life that is his kingdom. -Dallas Willard, Divine Conspiracy pg. 294
May I always strive for “more.”
