Since we have been Testing the students at our school this week, we have considered the tests that God gives us. The tests of obedience, trust, reliance, and belief. Today, we will end with the test of commitment.
Mark 2: 14 (NIV) - "As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector's booth. 'Follow me,' Jesus told him...."
Matthew was in a very lucrative profession. He was a very rich man. When Jesus calls to him, He is asking Matthew to leave it all. Will he do it?
That verse ends - "14As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector's booth. "...and Levi got up and followed him." He committed to Jesus - and never turned back. God calls us to commit to Him. Will we do it? Can it be said of us - "...and (put your name here) got up and followed Him."
The choice is yours. Will you pass the test? Will you pass the five tests we considered this week?
