Did I make the call?
"Come, Follow me!" - Mark 1:17
SO, if and when I decide that "Yes" I want to follow Christ, I need to do so on His terms. It is not my place to negotiate with Jesus when and where I can fit this "disciple" thing into my busy schedule.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer remarks:
"Discipleship is not an offer that man makes to Christ."
This is spot on. I need to be reminded that I never made the first call - I just responded to Jesus' call. It was his offer to me and when I accepted, I took on board the whole 'package' of being a Christ-follower!
