“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him” (Matthew 9:9).

Who are you?  Do you think yourself unreachable?  Amongst the lowest of the low was a tax collector in Jesus day.  No one, I repeat, no one is beyond the love of Christ.  He has come to save sinners.  The reality of Jesus is beyond what this world thinks.  We all are called into the amazing love of God which has been lavished upon us by Christ.  Come into His presence and purpose and learn how to really live.

Lord, I have my days when I am in doubt and do not believe anything good.  Help me to move beyond my selfishness and live as You created me to live.  Guide me in Your goodness and mercy so that I understand that, yes, You have called me too.  It does not matter where I am, what I have done, or what I can or am not able to do, You call all to come unto You and learn how to live life more abundantly.

Lord Jesus, there are many things in my secret room that only You know.  You know where I doubt and feel that I am beyond Your help.  Save me from all despair and guide me into the goodness of Your grace and mercy.  Guide me all the days of my life humbly and simply to follow You.  Savior of my soul , You know all that is needed.  Lead me this day in the grace You purchased for my redemption.  Amen.
