Have a “Tent Mindset”!
Welcome to our second week of meditation! In order to live out Christ’s second command, we must comprehend the rich insights of a “tent mindset.”
“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19).
Those who heard the call to follow Jesus understood that it required forsaking their former way of life and being trained by Him as a disciple. This is consistent with God’s call to Abraham. Abraham was told to leave his land, kindred, and father’s house and follow the Lord to a land of promise. In the process, he learned the mindset of a tent-dweller. When Abraham’s descendants went down to Egypt (symbolic of the world), they lost their tent perspective. Soon the pressure of their bondage caused them to cry out to God for deliverance.
