Nestled in a few verses in Luke's Gospel is a Jesus who would not have been tolerated on our city streets today: He was not politically correct. He did not try to save people's feelings. This was because the things He was saying were too important and His love for people too strong to allow Him room to tread softly.
Steven Lawson unpacks these few verses, looking at the unashamed honesty, passion, and urgency with which Jesus explains the incredible cost involved in following Him. It is undoubtedly the biggest sacrifice any person ever makes - but it is for the most abundantly glorious prize imaginable.
