Deadly invitation

Is the kind of invitation Jesus makes in Mark 8:34-36... To follow Christ is the most wonderful and truly human thing any sane person would do but - and this is crucial - it is also the most costly thing to do. Read the gospels and see how Jesus loves to call people to Himself yet, he never hides the fact that to follow Him amounts to denying self and loving death. Bonhoeffer must have had something of this in mind when he wrote "When Christ Calls a Man, He Bids Him Come and Die."
