Today’s Thoughts, Mark 1:18

At once they left their nets and followed him. (Mark 1:18)

I like this verse. It is simple. It shows loyalty. It gives us a picture. “At once,” it says. No time to debate. No thinking it over. No weighing of options. Simple. Quick. That’s how God often works. He gives us a choice. We have to respond. They “left their nets.” Everything they owned. Worked for. Their families. Friends. Job. Way of life. And they “followed Him.” They followed Jesus. A new way. A new way of life. A decision to make. A new life to live. A Messiah to follow. They would be changed. Forever. From that day on. Andrew and Peter. Two brothers on a journey. A spiritual one. It would lead to a cross. A new decision. A new life. Faith. Devotion. Martyrdom. I like this verse. It is simple. It shows loyalty…
