“Joining Jesus” - an idea and an invitation!
Matthew 4. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
Matthew 11 27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Actually Joining Jesus means taking the steps of faith in responding to Jesus’ initiative!
What does it mean for me to Join Jesus on His Mission?
What does it mean for me to Join Jesus in my Transformation?
Remember, grace is not opposed to effort …… it’s opposed to earning!
As Jesus invites me to join Him every day in my transformation I will have to deal with the competing invitations of rebellion and resignation.
