Jesus paid the ultimate cost. He gave his life to see many come into salvation. For the joy set before him, Jesus endured the cross. He was scorned, mocked, beaten, and deserted by his closest friends.
He paid the ultimate cost for you to find eternal life here in this life and the life after death. How can we not face a little hardship? How can we say that any cost is too great after he faced the ultimate cost for us?
Read Luke 23:44-56 and thank God for his son Jesus, who made a way for us through the ultimate suffering and cost. Repent of what you have been unwilling to give to him. What hard thing is God asking you to do or walk in? May you count no cost too great, since he himself spared no expense to ransom us back from the kingdom of darkness.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
1 Peter 2:24
