When Jesus called the disciples, they dropped their nets – their entire lives- and followed him. When he calls us, we don’t do much net dropping any more, and sometimes we feel that we can just keep doing what we’ve always been doing- only better with God at our side. But Jesus said “Deny yourself, pick up the cross and follow me.” To follow the voice of the Guide is to let go of our own agenda and throw ourselves toward His. How much more reckless can you get than that?
What (if any) nets have you dropped so that you can follow Christ?
