And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it –lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? Luke 14:27-30

If you buy a car, what do you do? You count the cost. You check the finances and make sure you can make the payment. Or for you Financial Peace people, you make sure you have 3-6 months worth of finances in the bank for an emergency fund. You have no debt and pay cash. Right?

In every decision that we make we need to count the cost. This is true in becoming part of Gateway and especially in the greatest decision you will ever make, becoming a follower of Christ. Believe it or not, successfully fulfilling your purpose as a Christian and truly being a part of the family of God at GBC Atoka, comes at a price.
