I have always been intrigued by the story of the fishermen dropping their nets and following Jesus. They not only dropped their nets but also left their boats, baskets, equipment, family, friends and homes. This always brings a question to my mind, ‘would I give it all up to follow Jesus?’
When I think about it, what have I really given up? A little time on Sunday mornings, maybe helping in the soup kitchen or serving on a church committee. Have I really left it all behind? Could I?
Have I sacrificed my time, money, talents or even prayed for others? I just wondering what life would look like if I gave up my sports team instead of just Sunday mornings? What about devoting as much time to reading the Bible as I do to checking Facebook? How about interceding for others in prayer instead of talking about them? Can I turn off the radio and wait and listen for Him? I have some nets to drop. What nets do you need to be untangled from and let go?
