100% FOLLOWERS Having encountered people who said they wanted to follow Jesus after they did something else, Jesus stated, "ANYONE WHO PUTS A HAND TO THE PLOW AND THEN LOOKS BACK IS NOT FIT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD" [Lk 9:62 NL].  Not only is Jesus encouraging following immediately but also not regretting leaving behind previous life or lifestyle, including things not honoring God such as sins. For people who want to follow Jesus and yet hang on to their previous life, Jesus states "WHOEVER TRIES TO KEEP HIS LIFE WILL GIVE UP TRUE LIFE. BUT WHOEVER GIVES UP HIS LIFE WILL HAVE TRUE LIFE" [Lk 17:33 IC]. Jesus wants people to follow Him completely, not just partially. Do you follow Jesus 100%? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
