Urgent Invitation



A couple of years ago our family visited Mexico.  We stayed in a fishing village.  Each morning, I would go outside to spend time with God as the world around me awakened.  One morning, I was earlier than usual and these fishermen were coming in for the day as the sun rose behind me. It reminds me of Jesus calling Peter and Andrew from their work….

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.  

Then He said to them, “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.”

They immediately left their nets and followed Him.  Going from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending nets.  He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him. ~ Matthew 4:18-22

They immediately left their work. They immediately left their family. They immediately left the life they knew.

All for Jesus.  All because He presented them with an option to be more.

What is Jesus presenting you with today?

I hope you immediately said yes.


Mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you always,
