As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. Matthew 9:9 (NIV)
Two simple words spoken by Jesus to Matthew, the tax collector, changed his life because Matthew said yes. The words “Follow Me” although simple have profound implications. The decision to follow Christ goes far beyond “just getting to Heaven”. The result is a dynamic internal change of heart which Scripture refers to as a “new man”. Jesus’ heart is that all people answer His call with “yes” to that simple invitation. Today is the day of salvation – you too are invited to follow Him!
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 (NIV)
