Restore, Rebuild, Renovate...

"You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
    restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
    make the community livable again." (Isa 58:12 The Message)

Reading
Isa 58:9-14; Lk 5:27-32

Jesus called to Levi, he left everything and followed him. But what followed that event was even more amazing. He called or rather invited Jesus to his home for dinner, and guess what, everyone of the guest was someone exactly like Levi himself. Jesus invited Levi, and he felt that change that happened within him. Levi in turn opened up his entire community for Jesus' call. To make that community live again.

Our change and calling by Christ can turn into a call for Christ himself to interact with our community. Open our community to Christ's presence. Christ calls us as repairer, re-builder and renovator or anything. Specially, we will be called as someone who makes the community livable again.
