Don’t you just love how God does things? So unpredictably and yet so obviously right - obvious of course only after He does them!
Surely, by now we are learning to expect the unexpected from God.
First, He is in a manger. Then in the water in the desert and now He starts preaching in some out-of-the-way place in Galilee. Of course! No way would Jesus begin as expected, with the keepers of the light in Jerusalem.
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in
the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned!
The hardworking fisherman didn’t see it coming either. Yet, they left everything behind at once, immediately. That’s what you do when the greatest Teacher in the world calls you, right?
They couldn’t have known what they were in for. How following Jesus would change their lives! But they had a desire to go wherever becoming more like this Teacher would lead them.
Doesn’t following Jesus lead to heaven? Yes, someday. But where are we going today?
It depends. Have we become His daily students?
If so, we only know what they knew…
We too are going wherever becoming more like our Teacher takes us.
And we know to expect the unexpected along the way. That’s what He does!
