Following Jesus on the Narrow Road

Taken from Jon Walker's book, Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship:
"When Jesus calls you to follow him, he isn't asking you to become a nice person and to do your best at helping others. He didn't die so you could feel good about the things you've screwed-up or so you could carry a sentimental hope of being re-united beyond the grave with the people you love but who have died. His call is a command for you to comprehensively and absolutely walk away from the way you do life now so you can follow him down an exclusive path through the narrow gate that leads to the kingdom of heaven."
(h/t to Rick Warren)
