The Sound of Nets

Jesus saw two fishermen, brothers casting their nets from the shore of the lake and He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.[Mk. 4:19-20] No questions asked. No hesitation. Just immediate action of dropping their nets and following Jesus.

That is the best action we can take. Just dropping our nets full of stuff that we do not need, that weighs us down and trips us up. Jesus is calling out to people. He is listening for the sound of nets dropping to the ground. The next sound should be our purposeful footsteps following Jesus in faith.

What stops you from dropping your ‘net.’ What stops Jesus from from using you for ministry?
