Jesus redefined what it meant to be “in” and “out” of the religious system of His day. Everyone is invited! That open invitation changes everything and brings joy instead of mourning… because the work is already completed.
Jesus' invitation to His first disciples is the same invitation given to us today: follow Him and become His apprentices. We are invited to be with Him, to become like Him, and to ultimately do what He did. The intentional choice is foundational for us to follow the Way because His way is the only pathway to the fullness of life.
