[Jesus called Levi (Matthew) to follow him. Levi gave a reception and invited his tax collector friends. The Pharisees grumbled.]
And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
Jesus was on mission. He was clear about His intentions. He knew what He was about. This is the same call for the church (individual and corporate). We are a city on a hill so that those who have not encountered Jesus have that opportunity. Jesus chose Matthew and Matthew opened a door of connections for Jesus.
Maybe if I want an open door to being on mission, it might start with one connection. Lord, help me “notice” who that person might be.
