Following Jesus is not easy. Anyone who thinks being a Christian means you have an easy life is mistaken. Jesus sends His followers into a world that at times can be hostile to Him and His followers. Jesus may ask us to do near impossible tasks. But He never sets us up for failure. He will always provide the resources necessary to do what He wants us to do.
Following Jesus means listening to Him and trying to accept and understand what He says. Following Jesus may uproot us at times, send us to unexpected places or give us a new perspective on life. Easy? No! Necessity? Yes! Priority #1!
