A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ.
Take a look at Matthew 4. Jesus called Peter and Andrew and then James and John. All four were fishermen. What did he tell them?
“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” v.19
Jesus didn’t say, “Come to church, read your bible, witness, and above all be nice.”
And they did. They dropped everything.
Granted they were going to be apostles and their new calling would be something beyond their wildest imagination.
In those days to be called by a rabbi was considered a great privilege. And Jesus’s reputation was that of a rabbi.
The two sets of brothers no doubt had heard the kingdom was near and they wanted in on the action.
But the real reason they so readily dropped their work to follow Jesus was because God drew them to Jesus. He enabled them to hear the call and respond.
Can you say the same? Or are you so caught up with the business and busyness of the church, or your work, or your family that Jesus’s calling you gets fainter every year?
Maybe it’s time for a re-calibration of your life where Jesus is always in front of you.
Ask him for that.
I will also.
Talk to me.
