Discipleship is not an option for the believer. Jesus required total commitment and life change for those he called, and that is true for all who call themselves Christian. To those who chose to follow he promised no place to lay your head at night, trials and troubles, being misunderstood and ridiculed, abused and killed. It is not an easy path, but a path that ultimately leads to life, joy, and security. His path is not easy, but his love is well worth this earths momentary trouble. Alleluia.
