Deuteronomy 30:15-20, Psalm 1, Philemon 1-21, Luke 14:25-33

I remember hearing a talk by a pastor of a church in Atlanta and someone asked him, how he had built a church with 2000 members. He said “Well, when I started, we had 300 hundred members, but after a year I had preached them down to 12, and with those 12 God built this church.”
