#887: Hello again folks! Sometimes you can read the Bible and yet, after reading a certain passage very many times, you can still learn something new - just like I did just the other day. It was amazing for this writer to discover (maybe even rediscover!) in the first chapter of the John's gospel how the disciples of Jesus began their journey of discovery.
Why is this important? Because every disciple of Jesus starts somewhere to write their story and runs their race (Hebrews 12:1) thereafter when He calls them and/or they call on the name of the LORD. I'm reminded of Jesus' words in Matthew 22:14: "For many are called, but few are chosen". If nothing else, we should take time every day to thank God for Jesus and the Salvation that He is working in us.
