Jesus' offer of a place in his kingdom is an offer that beats all others. It also comes to us as a completely free offer. As Jesus says, “the last shall be first”—those without will be given a place at his eternal banquet without it costing a penny. And yet, it costs everything! Jesus also says: “If anyone does not renounce all that he has, he cannot be my disciple”. In this passage, Jesus spells out the implications and cost of discipleship.
