The demands of Christian discipleship are absolute and unavoidable. If you are going to say, “yes,” to Jesus you must, in a very real way, say, “no,” to everyone and everything else. No person and no possession can be of more value or importance to you than Jesus. Short of this “all in” commitment, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus. You do not make that sort of commitment without first sitting down and counting the cost. We will be doing that today.

It is simply what is expected of His servants.
