386 Who is Really Important?

“(Jesus) saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. ‘Follow Me,’ He told him, and Matthew got up and followed Him” (Matthew 9:9).

So little is said about Matthew in the Scriptures. He records his call to follow Jesus briefly and the banquet he held to have his friends meet Him, as does Luke (5:27-32). Then he is in the lists of the twelve disciples, but no prominence is ever given to him.

Did he ever feel that he wasn’t very important? Others were much more in the limelight. Could he ever guess that the faithful records he kept of his time with Jesus would end up in a book that has been used by Your Spirit to bring probably millions into the kingdom of God over the past two millennia?

He knows now! So don’t you listen to the voice that tells you that you are not important in the great scheme of things. Everyone I call has a vital part to play in My work on earth, and the abilities I have given you are being used, even as Matthew’s were. Understanding this one day will be part of the great joy that eternity with Me will bring you.
