Bahan Alkitab: Matt 4:18-22 ; Matt 9:9-13 ; Luke 6:12-16 ; John 1:43-53
Jesus called to men ” Follow Me”
Grace enabled Matthew to follow Jesus. Grace covered all the sins of Matthew (The Tax Collector). Jesus changed each of His Disciples. They left their sinful ways and minds, and they learned to serve the ONE they loved so dearly.
Jesus call his disciples not because of any merit within them. Foolish, weak, lowly, despised, Jesus changed them all. “Sanctification” is the work of God;s free grace, whereby we are renewed in the whole man after the image of God, enabled to die unto sin and live unto righteousness.
God is renewing us everyday, HE wants us to Follow HIM by trusting Him and serve Him.
1 John 4:19
We love because HE first loved us
