Following begins with listening, “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people” Matthew 4:19. Religion says, “Change, and you can join us.” Jesus says, “Join us, and you will change.” There’s a huge difference. Jesus doesn’t expect you to be perfect. He just wants you to follow him. Being a sinner doesn’t disqualify you from following him. Being an unbeliever doesn’t disqualify you from following him. Following almost always begins with taking one small step.
Scripture: Matthew 4:9 – Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”
Prayer: Heavenly Father, each day, help me take one small step toward you.
