Is Jesus Worth It?

On Sunday, I'll be preaching a sermon entitled, "Is Jesus Worth It?" In this sermon, I will try to give some stories and reasons why following Christ is worth it.

And so I'll ask you--is Jesus worth:
  • Forgiving when you don't want to?
  • Getting strange looks when talking about your faith?
  • Giving money away rather than buying what your heart desires?
  • Getting up early to go to a discipleship group?
  • Turning off the TV and praying?
  • Not flipping off the guy who cut you off in traffic?

This is the question we answer everyday, though usually unconsciously. Our decisions show whether or not we believe Jesus is worth living the Christian life. In other words, choices equal actual belief, not what we say in Bible class or even to ourselves.

Do you have any stories to share about Jesus being worth the choices you have to make? I would love to hear them.
