Paying an Extra Price

Adrian Rogers

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, that I might finish my course” – Acts 20:24

Do you pay a price—some extra time in the morning—to get into the Word of God?  Do you pay the price of being ridiculed because you keep your Bible on your desk in the office or bow your head and thank God for His gracious goodness to you when He gives you a meal?  Are you willing to be different?  Will you finish your course?

When you’re running this race, you’re going to find out that you’re running right against the grain. Don’t get the idea that there’s the broad road and the narrow road, and the narrow road runs alongside the broad road, and over there a bunch of people are going this way, and over here you’re going in the same direction.

No, there’s the broad way, and here you are, right in the middle of it, going the other way. Against the grain. What we believe

starts at a different source
follows a different course
ends at a different conclusion
…and there is a price to pay.

Frankly, today we don’t like that idea of a “price to pay.”  We say, “Well, I’m saved by grace, and so I’m just going to float on into heaven on flowery beds of ease.”  No.  A disciple is one who follows his master, obeys his master, and there is a price to pay.
