Daily Scripture Reading: John 1:43-51

“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip
and said to him, ‘Follow me.’”
JOHN 1:43


Have you ever been extended an invitation? Invitations come
in all shapes and sizes through every form of media we have
at our disposal—from casual conversations in office hallways
to beautiful formal invitations that arrive in our mailboxes. With
every invitation comes an ebb and flow of anticipation and
excitement. In John 1, an invitation is made with two simple
words: “Follow Me.” This is an extraordinary invitation extended
to very ordinary people, and it comes with a promise as Jesus
says in verse 50, “You will see greater things than these.”
Jesus extends the same invitation to you: “Follow Me.”
What can you put aside today to experience life in the footsteps
of Jesus.
