The Courage To Follow Jesus (201011103)

The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, ‘Follow me.’”  (John 1:43, NIV)

Sometimes that is the way it is; you are minding your own business and as far as you are concerned everything is fine.  Suddenly, Jesus finds you.  I mean, it is as if he had been searching for you! 

You were spending time with your family, you were at work, you were on a journey when suddenly Jesus calls out to you saying, “Follow me.”  It is both an invitation as well as a challenge!  It is both lovely and frightening all at the same time.

That may have been the way it was for Philip.  Eusebius says that Philip had a wife and several daughters.  Yet, when he heard the Lord’s challenge to follow, he did.  What about you, do you have the courage to follow Jesus?
