With Him!

He appointed twelve - designating them apostles - that they might be with him…

Here we see what Christianity is all about! Jesus calls the twelve to be with Him.

Ultimately, this is what God is doing through Jesus – bringing us to be with Him. And it begins by becoming a daily student of the Teacher. Being with Jesus!

For nearly three years these men will be Jesus’ constant companions. They will enter His University. Study at His feet. Go everywhere with Him and gradually throughout their lives become more like Him.

Jesus calls them apostles. This word means - one who is sent. When they are fully trained, the Teacher will send His students out into the world to call others.

Each new student will also learn to be with the Teacher. They too will learn to live life everyday with a sense of His presence! To sit at His feet and to be trained to become more like Him.

And they will have the same mission. As they become more like Jesus, others will want to become serious students of Jesus also.

As Jesus calls these first students we see the beginning of His plan. Where does it all end?

Where it starts! Where it goes every step of the way!

His students will be with Him…forever!

  1. Who did he call?

    Evidently there were more than just twelve hanging around.

    no, not the names - though hopefully we could recie them.

    Who did Jesus call?

    "And he went up on the mountain and called to Him those He Himself wanted. And they came to Him." vs 13

    Those He himself wanted.

    He called those He wanted.

    While God want's everyone to come to repentance and all to be saved (2 Peter 3:9) There are also specific people He wants and calls at specific times for specific purposes.

    Jesus called those He wanted.

    Have you been called?

    It's because He wants you, He loves you, and He has plans for you. The God of the universe wants you. That, is an incredible thought!
