All who keep His commandments [who obey His orders and follow His plan, live and continue to live,

to stay and] abide in Him, and He in them. [They let Christ be a home to them and they are the home of Christ.]

And by this we know and understand and have the proof that He [really] lives and makes His home in us:

by the [Holy] Spirit Whom He has given us.

1 John 3:24

Some people wanted to follow Jesus, but they were afraid they would be put out of the synagogue ( see John 12:42). Some people are still afraid to follow the Lord because they might be put of of their family, their groups, or even their church.

Eventually, there will only be one Person to face-God. You won’t want Him to say," I had so much for you, but you did not receive to because you were to concerned about what other people thought; you were a people-pleaser.”  Jesus was not swayed by men’s opinions, threats, judgments, or criticisms. Follow Jesus, and enjoy life.
