Luke 5:27-28 from the Amplified Bible, “…Jesus went out and looked attentively at a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax office; and He( Jesus) said to him, ‘Join Me as a disciple…and accompany Me… And Levi forsook everything and got up and followed Jesus (becoming His disciple..)”
“Join Me”, Jesus said. Jesus looked Levi in the eye and asked him to be His disciple. He challenged Levi to leave his old life, and begin a new life. In Levi’s new life, he had joy. In his new life he had peace. In his new life he woke up every morning in the presence of God.
Today, Jesus is still saying “Join Me.” “Be my disciple.” The choice is yours. The life you have now. Or a new life full of joy, peace and presence of God.
Prayer: Jesus, I choose to join You as a disciple! I’m looking forward to my new life.
