And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
Matthew 9:9 KJV
If you were at your your job and hard at work,
And suddenly a stranger came to you,
And said ‘Come follow me,’ would you then shirk
The things that someone’s paying you to do?
Would you demand an explanation now,
For no one really does this kind of thing?
If you knew it was Jesus you’d know how
To quit your job and follow Christ the King.
But Matthew did not have that knowledge yet.
He did just what the Master told him to.
Don’t be so dead you take it as a threat.
Let Spirit guide your heart; He’s always true.
Be ever watchful; you’ll see Christ today.
Where there is love, He’s never far away.
