“At once they left their nets and followed him.”
I’ve always wondered what it was like for the disciples to leave their nets “at once” when Jesus told them to follow Him.
Three years ago, while we continue on with reaching the children through Crossover, the Lord led us to assist a young missionary going to the Philippines. We didn’t give it a second thought but willingly obeyed. Romy went ahead to accompany the missionary and Kaye stayed behind to dispose all of our “years of accumulated stuff” and in only 3 weeks emptied the house.
Obedience led to open doors
“I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.” (Rev. 3:8)
It was through the disciples’ obedience to follow Jesus, in spite of many struggles they had, that we all know Jesus today.
