In Luke 14, Jesus expressed the need for his followers to understand the cost of following him. In several places He speaks of His disciples to know what they will face when they follow Him. In Luke 9, there are three men who needed to understand the cost of following Jesus. One needed to better understand the Pressure that would be put on him as a follower; one needed to understand the Priority he needed to place on following Jesus. A third man needed to understand that when it comes to following Jesus, it is a Pursuit that requires whole-hearted, unwavering commitment.
