Jesus was a forbidding and unsparing leader…

We have to say that Jesus was a forbidding and unsparing leader. He issued an invitation, but made clear his demands. He supplied needs, but required sacrifice. He made promises, but emphasized costs. He was as offensive as he was appealing. No one who chose to follow him could have done so with their eyes closed.
