No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.
The commitment to Christ is unlike any other. It is a 180 degree turn and requires a decision to continue fully in the new direction. Those who look back and long for those so-called good old days are not fit for this walk. Jesus’ call is stringent, stark and complete. It requires us to set our face like flint upon Him. In Christ our redemption is complete and, as such, our turning must be also.
