Are you following?

In the book of Matthew, Matthew tells about how Jesus asked him to follow. If you remember, Matthew was the worst of sinners, a tax collector. Still, the creator of the world asked him to follow him

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. While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked 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.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matthew 9:9-13 NIV)

Jesus still asks us to follow him today. And my question to you today is this- are you following? One of the great things about following is that when you are following you are focused on Christ and you’re not focus on what others are doing. That makes it a little bit harder to be judgmental. Let us focus on following the Christ today and with our eyes on him may other see his glory.
