Personal Impact

Jesus’ call to discipleship was simple – “Follow Me” – yet incredibly difficult – “Take up your cross.” As a disciple, we must give of our time and talents to SERVE Christ and His Church. In doing so, we discover that contributing costs more than consuming. We learn that constructing costs more than criticizing. We even find that rest costs more than resentment. Why pay the cost? Because a faith that doesn’t cost anything is a faith that isn’t really worth anything.
