Venite post me (Mt. 4:19)


Jesus is still walking by your side. He sees you praying, working, and talking. He knows all your activities. He is present in your life even if you do not realize it. Furthermore, he calls you with his gentle voice: "Follow me!" It means: become holy as your heavenly Father is holy. Jesus encourages you and speaks to your heart directly.

Jesus also looks at your relations with family and friends. He is aware of everything which is happening in your life. Jesus sympathizes with your emotions. He is eager to help you overcome the difficulties. 

Only Jesus can make your life prosperous and gorgeous. The point is how you respond to his calling and invitation. Are you ready to obey him rather than your experiences and ideas? Are you not afraid of changing your attitude and behavior? 

Look! There are so many followers of Jesus. All of them are weak and sinful people. But Jesus makes them apostles and heroes.

Jesus knows very well that deep in your heart you are a child of God. He sees not only your face but also your soul. For that reason, you cannot cheat him. 

Eventually, Jesus Christ teaches you what love is. True love is much more than love for your closest ones. Divine love is stronger than the love of your friends. His love is without limit and capable of dying for others. 

Would you like to leave your private boat and sell everything for Jesus' sake? If you are brave enough and have faith, you can follow Jesus...
