Has Following Jesus Cost You Anything?

Here is the reality that Nicodemus is about ready to have impressed on him: There is no way to follow Jesus without him interfering with your life.  Following Jesus will cost you something.  Following Jesus always costs something.  For Nicodemus it would cost him a powerful position.  It would cost him the respect of his co-workers.  It would cost him his source of income and livelihood.  It would cost him friendships.  It would likely cost him some family relationships.  This brings up a very telling question for most fans: has following Jesus cost you anything?
