Jesus always comes rushing to us. But we also can choose to walk away or make him less of a priority in our lives. We also choose to make the community of Jesus less important than other things in life. To be a disciple of Jesus means to make Jesus and his ministry more valuable or more of a priority in your life than other things. And making these choices cost something. Sometimes it costs a lot.
