"In offering ourselves as fully as we can, we discover the cost of discipleship.
"For to bind our lives to Jesus Christ requires that we try to walk with him into the sorrows and suffering of the world. Being bound to Jesus Christ, we see barriers broken down and we are led to places we have never been before and to carry loads we have not even seen before.
"Having offered ourselves to Jesus Christ, we may expect to become the eyes, ears, voice, and hands of Jesus Christ in the world and in the church.
"The cost of salvation? It is completely free and without cost. The cost of discipleship? Only our lives - nothing more and nothing less." -Reuben P. Job, A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God
