The worst mistake that a follower of Jesus can make is to keep on looking back, to long for the sins, friends and sinful pleasures that he gave up when he decided to follow Jesus.
Jesus warned that whoever puts his hand to the plow and keeps on looking back, is not worthy of Him.
We read in Hebrews 10:36 "For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
37FOR YET IN A VERY LITTLE WHILE,
HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY.
38BUT MY RIGHTEOUS ONE SHALL LIVE BY FAITH;
AND IF HE SHRINKS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM.
39But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul."
Are we eagerly following Jesus or do we keep on looking back to the world?
May Jesus bless you.
