When Jesus invites us to follow Him He offers us a wonderful life where every tear is wiped away and no mourning will take place. However, that is all to come. When Jesus asks us to follow Him he gives it to us straight. If you follow me you will have troubles. You will be persecuted. Becoming a Christian doesn’t mean your life will suddenly become simple, sorted and wonderful, but it does mean you will have Jesus with you every step of the way. It means we may have the promise of a tough life but with a wonderful pension plan!!
