Why one is so important to leave the ninety-nine

Why one is so important to leave the ninety-nine…

Jesus knew the 12 before He called them into Discipleship. Did the hearts of these men start to wonder or lean on Jesus prior to the meeting? He chose 12 ordinary men but not just everyday working-class men, sinners. “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners”- I AM

Why would He start His ministry with the unfit? What is the difference between Sinners and Pharisees? We are all lost in our transgressions but with Jesus we are sons and daughters chosen into His purpose. Jesus spent His time with ones deemed unclean by religious rulers, yet they themselves where unclean in their judgment.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us — Romans 5:8. Understand He already knows you before He chose to pull on you heart. He chose you before you had time to place your ideas on the purpose He had for you. He calls each of us for one reason or another but we must understand He chose us before we knew of His decision. This creates power by knowing and believing that even before Him and His knowledge and power we had been chosen for His greatness. So why in our state of post decision to follow Christ do we still feel powerless? Simply put we doubt the gift that has been given to us because it seems unbearable after accepting His life. “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. –I AM

In the boat with the disciples when the storm came the Disciples had doubt, this is the same doubt we have we face with the adversaries and principalities against the Kingdom. Thus, creating a powerless attitude in us which denounces the very words spoken in His gospel. I am not alone in experiencing this, because we see the same doubt from the very men who saw Jesus do His miracles. So why do we doubt this promise? We place earthly limitations on Heavenly results. When we expect earthly outcomes, we breathe fear and doubt into our prayers for heavenly actions. Knowing that He chose us before we chose Him, let us go on knowing that He knew the power we possess before we practiced our faith. Faith breathes life into heavenly results.
