Follow Me

1 Samuel 25-26; Psalms 63; Matthew 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…many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples…’Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and “sinners”?’ On hearing this, Jesus said, ’It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: “I desire mercy not sacrifice”.’”

Matthew 9:9-13

Jesus loved and pursued people that society avoided or even despised. His requirements for tax collectors were the same as for Pharisees - “Follow me!” In following Jesus we learn his ways and we have the opportunity to be transformed.

Why do we think transformation is possible when we ask Jesus to follow us?

Jesus prayer, that we ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field, means that we must pray for workers who serve with Jesus and like Jesus - workers who say “Yes” to Jesus’ invitation to “Follow me”. Jesus is mobilizing workers who sit down with tax collectors, sick people, demon-possessed, and all the other situations experienced in Matthew chapter 9.

Are we this kind of worker?

Are we asking the Lord of the harvest to send out this kind of workers?

Are we workers who follow Jesus and love others as he did?

“Lord Jesus, you are my leader and example. Lead me in your mission, for you glory.”
