Should the cost of following Jesus be understood by those praying the sinner's prayer? In these teachings I will cover not only the cost of following Jesus, but also the inheritance those receive who "sell out" to Him. We must understand that praying the sinner's prayer is only the entrance into a changed life, lived on the earth as a follower of Jesus. There is a vast cost that we must be aware of. Jesus made that clear many times in the Scripture.
