It requires PERFECT TRUST and PERFECT OBEDIENCE to follow Jesus Christ. If you do not trust Him you will not follow and obey Him. If you follow Jesus Christ you will often have to choose between obeying Him and obeying YOUR feelings, desires, common sense, the opinions of other people. You will often be alone because Jesus will take you on the narrow road, the road less traveled. He will lead you and guide you along narrow places, He will take you through the shadow of death where it seems impossible but He will also bring you next to green pastures where you find rest for your soul in the presence of your Master.
“The righteous will live by faith but if he withdraws My soul will have no pleasure in him.” Do you PERFECTLY TRUST Jesus Christ? Will you follow Him where He guides you? Or do you trust more in yourself, your own abilities your common sense and the advice of your friends?
You cannot follow Jesus Christ if you do not PERFECTLY TRUST Him above everything, even above yourself.
May Jesus bless you.
