Does my title shock you? It’s not very seeker sensitive, I’ll admit.
Then again, I didn’t exactly enumerate the things you lose by coming to Jesus, nor did I explain the nature of those things. Yes, you lose a lot by coming to Jesus, but consider what you actually lose. Perhaps you lose undesirable things that only lock you in a prison of despair. Perhaps you would be relieved — even grateful — to lose them. Some losses turn out to be wonderfully liberating!
I also didn’t mention that coming to Jesus results in gaining much more than you lose. Nor did I tell you about the quality of the things you gain. You might want to consider the idea that, by coming to Jesus, you gain blessings that far outweigh any losses you incur. Why wouldn’t you gratefully accept losses that allow you to gain eternal riches?
Listen to this treasured hymn as you calculate the losses and gains involved in coming to Jesus.
