But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:62, NLT)
Half measures will not do. You will either follow Jesus or you will not follow Jesus.
The church is full of people who like the idea of following Jesus. Full of people who like the benefits of following Jesus. Who like the routine of following Jesus, or the camaraderie, or the feelings, or the traditions. The church is not full of people who truly follow Jesus without looking back, without a hidden agenda, without reservations.
Half measures will not do.
