'Yes Jesus I will follow you, just as soon as I take care of a few things. I will follow you when I am finished with this current project. I'm coming.'
We just 'fell back' from daylight savings time to standard time. In a sense, sometimes I think we are operating the same way with Jesus. We are on two different time zones. I am sometimes on 'Easy life time zone" and Jesus asks us to operate on "Simply follow Me time zone". .
One of the truths the Leavell's are realizing, is that when Jesus says Come - or Go we must keep it simple even though it is not easy. Obedience to the Lord, is simple, and it it immediate - it requires dropping everything and following Him.
Anything else may be easier, but I am not so sure it isn't Disobedience.
