Jesus passed by the tax collector’s table. “Follow me” he said to Matthew. 

Jesus walked along the Sea of Galilee and saw men fishing. “Follow me” he said to Peter and Andrew. 

Jesus continued to walk along the seashore. He saw men working on a ship. “Follow me” he said to James and John. 

The point is Jesus met the men where they were. They didn’t have to prepare themselves or be in a certain place. They just answered the call, from where they were, to be followers of Christ. 

The word says Jesus came to seek and to save those that were lost. I am so glad he found me!! 

Scripture taken from:

Matthew 9:9

Matthew 4:18-22

Luke 19:10

Hide and Seek

Ezekiel 34:16

The sheep were scattered throughout the terrain. Some were hidden behind rocks. Others were stuck in the mud. Some were wandering in the opposite direction of the food source.

The shepherd went after those sheep. He put forth effort in finding them. Once he found them he led them out into a safe path, in green pastures where he could see them and they could see him.

People try to hide themselves from God. They go to places they know are full of sin. They hide behind the worldly success they may have obtained.

But Jesus pursues those people. He doesn’t just offer the obligatory call to Salvation once. Instead He finds them where they are. And He is adamant about them following Him.

That’s love. Jesus humbled himself again to come after you. He pleaded with you to come to Him. He sought you out.
