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 they have it 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."- Matthew 8:21-22
