If you desire to follow Jesus now
You must be ready now to lose your life,
For laying hands upon the heavy plow
Demands you give your all through whip or knife.
There can be nothing you have left behind
That makes you want to stop and turn around.
The way of Christ requires all your mind,
Your body and your love for Him profound.
If you look back upon your former days
And long for something you once loved to do,
You’ll surely stumble, fall and lose your way,
So leave the past behind and follow through.
When you make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour
You leave upon the cross your old behaviour.
“No man, having put his hand to the plough,
and looking back,
is fit for the kingdom of God.”
Luke 9:62 KJV
ELisha had to sell his oxen and even said goodbye to his parents before going with ELiJAH. 1Kings 19:20
