    I d say the command Follow Me more than implies.  However we phrase the thought, Jesus wanted long-term, committed followers.   Rev. Chuck Jones Atlanta,

      It's implied, isn't it in the fact that unlike a Rabbi, he recruits
      disciples and commissions them to advance his mission. If he didn't
      need them, he wouldn't have taken these actions.

      It's also in implied in the despair that he is depicted as undergoing in
      Gethsemane after one betrays him and after he sees how the others are
      likely to (and then do) desert him.
