The Cost of Following Jesus

The Cost of Following Jesus

Matthew 8:18-22

Key verse 8:20

Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

Read verses 18-19.  Why did Jesus cross to the other side of the lake?  Who came to Jesus at that time?  What did he say to Jesus?  What can we learn about this man; from who he was and what he said to Jesus?

Read verse 20.  What was Jesus’ reply?  What does his reply show about his way of life?  How do you think Jesus was able live without a place to lay his head (John 16:28)?  What can we learn about what it means to follow Jesus?  

Read verses 21-22.  What did another disciple say to Jesus?  Why is what he asked understandable?  Yet, what did Jesus tell him?  What else can we learn about the life of a disciple?
