Smart Start

Re: Verse reading–Matthew 4:12-22 (day two)  “As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. . .’come, follow me’, Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.’ “(vs 18-19)  Knowing that He was building a “forever foundation”, Jesus was careful/deliberate in the selection of the people who would help Him.  These men met Christ months earlier.  (John 1)  Having followed “casually” for some time, they are now called to do so “full time” (ie to leave their jobs and families for kingdom service).  Notice the time involved, the complete absence of haste.  No decision is more important to a church or ministry than the people who are enlisted for leadership/service.  Has the Lord done the same with you?  Gradually allowing you to know Him, has He called you deeper and deeper into service by calling you to specific assignments?  When the Lord is building, He starts smart. He calls specific people for specific tasks.
