Following Jesus means following him alone. Fan’s don’t want to put Jesus on the throne of their hearts. Instead they keep a couch on their hearts and, at most, give Jesus a cushion. He’s asked to share the space. But Jesus makes it clear to this crowd that he’s not interested in sharing your heart.
