“And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets and followed him.” (Matthew 4:19-20) Can you imagine the courage that it must have taken to drop their entire lives down by their nets laying on the ground, to follow a man they had barely even met? I think I’ve got courage when I take steps into the unknown, like moving to San Diego, but anything I’ve done pales in comparison to the decision that Peter and Andrew made here. Didn’t they have questions that they needed answered first? Didn’t they need to discuss things with their families and pray about it? Does Jesus call us like this anymore and if so, how do we answer?
