In this brief essay, drawn from Church Dogmatics, Barth articulates what it means to follow Jesus in faith. He emphasizes that discipleship involves a detachment from the authority of possessions, foregoing the pursuit of personal glory, challenging the fear and use of force, the dissolution of self-evident personal attachments, and a "better righteousness," which goes beyond actions to intentions and practices piety in secret. "The command of Jesus . . . is issued with all the freedom and sovereignty of grace against which there can be no legitimate objections, of which no one is worthy, for which there can be no preparation, which none can elect, and in the face of which there can be no qualification."

One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus in this classic text on ethics, humanism, and civic duty. What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between “cheap grace” and “costly grace.” “Cheap grace,” Bonhoeffer wrote, “is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship....Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know....It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life.” The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

'Running The Race To Win' is a book about developing a deeper understanding of discipleship and developing a deeper relationship with Christ. It does not matter if you are a businessperson, schoolteacher, nurse, athlete, computer technician, student etc. you are called to be a disciple and to make disciples. The contemporary church has many times neglected the original command laid down by Christ Himself and for this reason discipleship seems to be a radical message. However, for the church to fulfill its mission we must once again return to this radical call. The word radical comes from the Latin word radix meaning the root of things. Radical discipleship is simply a call to return to biblical foundations. Biblical foundations are at the root of discipleship since a disciple is one who has been instructed in the foundational teachings of Christ.

In Matthew 16:2426 (KJV) says Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Our life is more fulfilled and meaningful when we surrender our will to God. Life definitely will hand you surprises, unexpected losses or disappointments but follow Jesus. Allow God to take control, to lead and guide you in everything concerning your life. Only God can take less and do more; take nothing and make something out of it. And God receives the glory. What we consider to be a loss will be a great gain when we are in a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is all about accepting his love, walking in it, living a life that displays it. In a relationship with him, we learn true humility; we develop a prayer life and learn what should have destroyed us only made us stronger. You are uniquely gifted and have an assignment to fulfill in the body of Christ. As stated by the Apostle Paul in Romans 12:1(KJV) that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, and then you will be on a journey destined for greatness.
