Luke 5:27-32

This is another account of the calling of Matthew, also known as Levi. Jesus saw a tax collector by the name of Levi (5:27). Jesus knew who he was calling when he chose Levi. Jesus was not surprised by his history. Jesus wasn't caught off guard by his profession. Jesus "saw." Jesus knew he was getting an ordinary sinner to join his inner circle. The same is true for you and me today. There are no surprises for Jesus when he calls you to a task. He is the master of using the unlikely and changing ordinary lives.
