Do you wanna write a book? Run a marathon? Learn how to play the piano? I would love to be able to answer “Yes!” to all of these questions. I genuinely do want to do all of these things. But like anything worth doing, it’s one thing to say “Yes.” It’s another thing to actually go and do it. Not only does it take desire, but it also takes sacrifice and dedication.
The same is true when it comes to following Jesus. We may have the desire to follow Him. But saying yes to following Him and actually doing it are two different things. In Luke 18 Jesus meets a guy who genuinely wants to follow. But when he learns of the sacrifice and dedication that go along with it, he’s not sure it’s what he signed up for.
