You Know | Matthew 9.9-17
You Know that Jesus is the one you want to follow because He alone - like no other God - is unwilling that we remain in our hidden junk but, He alone, provides all we need for real life in Him.
This is what we see in the call of Matthew, the author of this gospel, a man who leaves everything to follow Jesus. Not so much that Matthew was depressed in his career but that he was so impressed with Jesus. Jesus, who says only two words - but two words that rattle the soul of the man: "Follow me." When Jesus says "Follow me," He speaks to all of what still remains as hidden in us and gives us relief to be fully healed and fully provided for in Jesus alone.
