Jesus [said] that nothing – absolutely nothing – must stand in the way of being His disciple.
Many people are willing to have Jesus as part of their lives – as long as it doesn’t cost them anything. They may even profess faith in Jesus and join a church. But Jesus to them is almost like an insurance policy – something they obtain and then forget about until they die. But Jesus calls us to follow Him every day. What keeps you from being His disciple?
Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead!”
