Disreputable followers

Levi got up, left everything, and followed him. Later, Levi invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus’ followers.) Mark 2:14-15

Everyone who follows Christ starts somewhere (possibly a disreputable somewhere).  Jesus didn’t say to change first, then follow; He said to follow wholeheartely. Transformation happens while we’re following Christ.

 Lord, create an atmosphere of fellowship and support among all of us followers.
