It is costly to follow Me, My children. It will cost you everything. That is why you must count the cost first if you want to follow Me, My way.
Many are not willing to count the cost first therefore they do not follow Me. What will it profit anyone if they gain the whole world but forfeit their own soul?
I paid the ultimate price on the Cross for all out of love, it was costly but worth it. It is not My will that anyone perish but that all repent to have eternal life. I find no pleasure in the death of a sinner rather that they repent because there will be no mercy without true remorseful repentance.
You will also pay a price, it will cost you, but it will not be in vain, if you endure and follow Me, My way until the very end. My ways are not your ways, My plans are not your plans, My thoughts are not your thoughts. Submit to Me and My authority. Deny yourself, pick up your cross every day and follow Me as I guide and lead you every step of the way into My perfect will.
It will be costly to obey and follow Me. You will be hated, persecuted and some killed but great will your reward be in Heaven, if you endure until the end.
