As Jesus begins his ministry, he asks four fishermen to come with him and immediately they say yes. For them to respond without hesitation requires a lot of courage; it is life-changing. They are prepared to leave what they know behind and learn to ‘fish for people’ with Jesus.
Jesus offers to take their skills and use them for kingdom building. How easy would it be for us to respond to a life-changing call so quickly? Have you experienced God using the skills you have in a new way?
This week we explore responding without hesitation to Jesus.
