The Call of Christ
A Sermon on Matthew 9:9
Jesus Calls Matthew
As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. (ESV)
The call of Matthew; and its relevance to modern man; Christianity not a philosophy; but of history; what is the meaning of the call? a call of totality; a new realm and level of thinking; His call leads to Calvary; called to humiliation; persecution and death; yet also called to God and forgiveness.
