What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs
through which he revealed his glory; and
his disciples believed in him.
Last week I used this same verse for my Monday post. But I have been thinking about the calling of the disciples and why were they chosen? And why did they FOLLOW?
What was it about this man, Jesus, that caused them to leave the life they knew and follow him? Leave the familiar and comfortable to follow him?
Was it his charisma?
His physical appearance?
The way he called them? The words he used?
Was it a matter of being in the right place at the right time?
I don't know WHY they followed, but I think I can learn something from their trust.
When he called his first disciples, they left everything and followed. Luke 5:11
Then the question may arise, Well, why did he CHOOSE them?
Or...why did he choose THEM?
I don't know and I don't know why he chose me, but he did. I am a daughter of the King. And sometimes, I wonder what he is calling me to do. What mission am I being asked to embark upon? What can I do to further the message of the Lord?
Will it take seeing a miracle for me to believe? No. I believe, I really do. I just want to have the deep faith of the disciples. Deep enough to drop everything and follow.
And right now, at this point in my life...I still try to hang on. Hang on to some of the familiar, hang on to things I think are important...just hang on.
I want to let it go of the things I cling to that are not beneficial to my walk with him.
I know it is in the letting go that the following and growing begins.

Do you ever wonder why you were chosen?
Do you, like me, try to hang on to the familiar instead of following without question?
