The only thing that qualifies us to be followers of Jesus is that we are sinners who need grace. Sinners are the only kind of people Jesus calls, as the Apostle Matthew discovered.
Jesus does not call us because of our righteousness or our gifts. He calls us when all we have is need. He called us when he was on earth and he calls us still, he wants us as his disciples, he wants us to know and to love him and to serve him in the strength and grace that he supplies (1 Peter 4:11), because apart from him, we can do nothing. (John 15:5).
