Many do not really understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus. When Jesus put His team together. They were quite ordinary, hopelessly human, and remarkably unremarkable. Simon and Andrew had been disciples of John the Baptist. James and John, the Sons of Thunder are also called. Mark’s details indicate the testimony of an eyewitness, probably Peter. All of these men were doing something when Jesus called them. If you want to be used by God, get busy doing something for the Lord!
Do what you can where you can do it. If you want to be used by God, be faithful to what is before you now. We need to bring Jesus home. One prays, another shares, God does the work. The Bible says, “Jesus was a friend of sinners.” Jesus built bridges to nonbelievers instead of burning them. Are you a follower of Jesus?
Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost.
We need to work together if we want to bring our friends to Jesus.
We are so much stronger together as a church.
