They Immediately Left and Followed #677

18  And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19  Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20  They immediately left their nets and followed Him. (Matthew 4:18–20, NKJV)

Peter and Andrew’s immediate decision to follow Jesus sets an example for all who are contemplating following Him. Delay is dangerous and deadly, for by delaying one remains lost in sin. Peter and Andrew walked away from their livelihood in order to follow Jesus. The cost of being a disciple is real. God’s call to follow Him challenges one’s faith. Christians, too, are tempted to hesitate when the word of God calls us to do some good thing. What are you being indecisive about today? When you know the Lord’s will, do it with your whole heart and have His blessing (Jas. 1:25).
