What holds you back from completely following Jesus Christ?

What holds you back from completely following Jesus Christ?
.
Are there things that are too hard to accept?
.
Do you have a hard time trusting and having complete faith in Christ?
.
What if you were asked to drop everything and follow Him, would you?
.
“As we follow Jesus Christ, He will lead us to live with Him and our Heavenly Father, with our families. Through our many challenges of mortality, if we remain faithful to covenants made, if we endure to the end, we will qualify for that greatest of all the gifts of God, eternal life. In His holy presence, our families can be together forever.” President Nelson.
.
Do you believe that?
.
Do you have faith that you’ll be resurrected and live again?
.
These are all questions you can ask yourself. It’s okay to have “question and answer time” with yourself. It’s a good opportunity to see where your faith stands and see what improvements you can make.
.
“Focusing on the Lord and everlasting life can help us through all the challenges of mortality. Imperfect people share planet earth with other imperfect people.
.
Ours is a fallen world marred by excessive debt, wars, natural disasters, disease, and death. Personal challenges come. Whatever may cause the worry, each of us yearns to find inner peace.
.
Jesus Christ is the only source of true and lasting peace.” President Nelson.
.
These are some powerful reminders and gives us great focus.
.
Where do you stand? There is no time for fence riding. You are either all in the gospel of Jesus Christ or not.
.
“Then​ shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten ​​​virgins​, which took their ​​​lamps​, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five ​were​ foolish. They that ​were​ foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: ​But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps…Watch​ therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” Matt 25.
.
Hear Him, follow Him and be prepared!
