Luke 5:27-28 (KJV)

27. And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.

28. And he left all, rose up, and followed him.

Levi was a tax collector, and in Jesus day they were despised. Levi was a Jew that collected for the Roman government. In order to increase his personal income, Levi required more from his countrymen than the government demanded. Therefore his fellow Jews despised him and deemed him a traitor.

Jesus calls the least likely candidates to join His team. Levi was chosen by Jesus and willingly left everything to follow Jesus. Levi was willing to leave his career and forfeit his income in order to be on mission with Jesus. Following Jesus involved trusting Jesus with his life and his future.

There is not a person on earth Jesus can’t use. There’s not a person alive that Jesus cannot transform.

Will you allow God to use you to bring you forth, to transform you into the divine purpose He has chosen for you, thus bringing you into an abiding relationship with Jesus?

Be blessed in all you do!!
