What I Read Today;
Exodus 25-26; Psalm 30; Mark 2; 1 Corinthians 14
Imagine you are living a comfortable life. Your sitting at your place of employment, minding your own business. Just an ordinary day in your ordinary life. You work at a job that isn’t very popular among your friends. Maybe the IRS or a local traffic cop or maybe a code inspector. You don’t always get to make people happy. In spite of that, life is comfortable for you. Things are going well.
Then in walks, Jesus. Within seconds, your life turns upside down.
He says, follow me. So you jump up and leave your high paying job, your comfortable life, and you follow him. You are not sure why. But you do it.
Then you hear the critics come out. Hey Jesus, how can you use a thief like him? There is no way that he can become a disciple of yours. That hypocrite is just following you to be popular.
You know what? Jesus doesn’t care what other people think. He knows who you are. Jesus can see inside of you. He knows exactly what he is asking and precisely who he is asking it from.
He says, follow me. Forget about the critics. Don’t listen to the naysayers. I love you, and I need you.
Is he calling you today?
