Of all the people Jesus could have chosen to be one of his disciples, He chose Levi (Matthew) a despicable outcast no rabbi would put on his team. As a tax collector for the Roman government, Levi was considered an untrustworthy traitor, yet Jesus gave him the opportunity of a lifetime to follow him. What did Jesus mean when He said, “Follow Me”? And how are we supposed to follow Jesus the way He desires? And if fully devoted followers are disciples, then how we are to become disciples that disciple others? Be encouraged to fully follow Jesus and experience the abundant life He offers you even if others don’t think you measure up.
