Following Jesus sounds like a nice thing to do, but to follow Him, your heart must be in it 100%, as shown in a couple of interactions Jesus had with people,
And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side. Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matthew 8.18–22).
Did this scribe and the disciple truly know what it means to follow Jesus wherever He leads us? It takes priority over everything in life.
- Do you know what it takes to follow Jesus?
- Are you willing to give your all to follow Him?
