“And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Mathew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, FOLLOW ME. And he arose, and followed him.” Mathew 9:9
AT HIS TABLE!
Jesus wants us to follow him, it’s not that he desires to have the approval of the multitudes so that he can say look at me! He doesn’t need our approval for what he does. Jesus wants us to follow him because we need direction in our life. His direction is for our benefit, it leads us to our own land, a good pasture and a place of rest from all the troubles in our life. Jesus has concern for our welfare saying, “I will feed my flock and I will cause them to lie down.” He doesn’t want us to wander aimlessly through life allowing ourselves to be placed in harm’s way, making us meat to all the beast of the field. Instead he calls us to follow him so that we will have direction, protection, and a hedge of love to surround us that keeps us safe from all harm.
FOLLOW JESUS TODAY!
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thine ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6
AND HE AROSE AND FOLLOWED HIM TRUSTING JESUS AT HIS WORD!
