19 “Follow Me,” He told them, “and I will make you fish for people!”
Jesus called Peter to put down his nets and follow Him. Peter's life began the moment he cast aside his nets and began to follow Jesus. No longer a man fishing for a living, he was living for the fishing of others.
He said this to signify by what kind of death he would glorify God. After saying this, He told him, “Follow Me!”
After 3 1/2 years of following Jesus, the simplicity off the call remained the same, "follow Me."
We never graduate beyond the simplicity or profundity of those words.
The whole of the Christian life could be summed up by "follow Me."
Not "catch up to Me!" or ""see if you can't grab Me," but "follow."
From wherever you are, in whatever you're doing, from whatever you've done, to wherever you're hoping to go: stop and follow Jesus.
You are never outside His reach or His simple invitation that begins, sustains and perseveres your life to the very end in Him.
