Luke 5:27-28

“Follow me.”

How simple Jesus’ call to discipleship really is…simple, short, direct, invitational.  Some of the first invitees were delighted that such an important Rabbi would invite them to follow.  Others, when they learned more about Jesus’ teachings, said, “no thanks.”  Imagine Jesus Christ looking directly at you, inviting you to make him Lord of your entire life, and saying, “Come on, follow me.”

As you begin this spiritual journey, where you start is important.  What do you do with Jesus’ invitation?  How important is it for you?  What would it mean for your life if you answered Jesus’ call at a deeper level and a more significant way than ever before?  What does fully devoted discipleship look like for you?

Prayer Thought:  What does it mean for me to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ?
