Will you drop everything to follow Jesus just as Peter did? There is God’s promise for everyone who will follow Him.
Ben Hughes shares a word of encouragement from Matthew 4. He encouraged everyone to drop everything and follow Jesus just as Peter did when he heard Jesus call for him while he was still a simple fisherman.
“As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.” – Matthew 4: 18 – 20
When Jesus called out for Peter, He gave him a purpose and a promise that he will be a fisher of men.
“He [Jesus] actually said, ‘Peter, come and follow Me and I will make you a fisher of men.’ So not only did he have a purpose, but He also gave Peter a promise,” Ben said. “He said, ‘Peter, I’m going to take this gift, your passion for the lost, this passion to fish and I’m going to use you to reach many many men and women for My sake.’”
Ben then urged everyone to answer God’s invitation for them. God is inviting every one of us to drop everything and follow Him as Peter did.
“Jesus is stretching out His hand to you today in the same way,” he said. “He’s giving you that same invitation right now. He’s saying, ‘Hey, would you come and follow Me?’”
