“And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him. When He had gone a little farther from there, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets. And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after Him.”
Mark 1:16-20 NKJV
Jesus called the brothers John and James, sons of Zebedee, to follow Him. The brothers left their family fishing business and their father without hesitation in order to follow Jesus.
Who or what are you willing to lose in order to commit fully to God? We lose nothing and gain everything when we pursue God with diligence and passion.
Father God, help me to be courageous and let go of anything or anyone who hinders my relationship with You. Lord, quickly ease any feelings of sorrow or loss. Increase my desire to fully commit to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
