Matthew 9:9 “As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him and Matthew got up and followed him.”
Matthew got up and followed Jesus. He simply left what he was doing and followed Jesus immediately. He did not argue, give excuses, or have discussions regarding the pros and cons of following Jesus. He plainly got up and followed Jesus.
Jesus says, “Follow me!”
When this call was given in our village church, several believers volunteered immediately to go to a faraway tribe and preach the Gospel. I supported these African missionaries going to others to share the Gospel.
Matthew made no excuses and neither should we.
Jesus said, “Follow me.”
Get up and follow him.
