What did Jesus say in invitation?

In inviting people to follow him, sometimes Jesus’ invitation sounds offensive to our ears. Jesus said to one, “let the dead bury the dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God”. That wasn’t very pastoral was it? Or listen to this invitation “no one who put a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God”. Or you “follow me”. Not very politically correct! Invite someone today to take a closer look at Jesus Christ who in invitation challenges us to a transformed life.
