Passage: Mark 8:31-38
Service Type:

Ordering your Christian Faith at the drive-thru or scooping up helpings of what you find tasty and acceptable may seem satisfying for the moment but there is a real major stomach ache coming shortly.  It will not bring lasting joy or strength of character that will see us through life's struggles.  As Dietrich Bonhoeffer admonished in his work "The Cost of Discipleship" there is no cheap grace.  Lasting relationship with the Savior comes from taking up the cross and following Him.  Jesus did speak of a final banquet - he never said it would be a picnic.
