Jesus Calls Matthew

The Cost of Following Jesus

(Matthew 8:18-22)

Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart to the other side. And a certain scribe came, and said to him, Master, I will follow you wherever you go. And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has not where to lay his head. And another of his disciples said to him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Jesus Calls Matthew

(Matthew 9:9-13)

And as Jesus passed forth from there, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said to him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

Biblical prophecies of the coming of the Lord have been fulfilled. It stands to reason that the Lord has returned—so why have we yet to welcome His arrival? Will we not be plunged into the great tribulation if this carries on? And just what should we do to welcome the Lord’s coming?
