Daily Scripture Reading: Luke 6:12-16
“And when day came, he called his disciples and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles.” Luke 6:13 (ESV)
Jesus, the Messiah, prayed before choosing His 12 disciples. They were hardly the elite—some fisherman, a tax collector, an accountant, a scholar. They were fast asleep while Jesus faced arrest. As He was beaten and condemned in a mock trial, they hid. They denied Him; He suffered on a cross for them. Yet none of this disqualified them from serving Jesus! After His resurrection, Jesus called them back, empowering them to spread the Gospel.
Jesus calls us to be His disciples. He teaches, mentors, and promises to journey with us. Have you left everything to follow Him? Will you put Him first? Will you listen and obey today?
