“And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me” (Mark 1:17).
Can you imagine what it must have been like for those Galilean fishermen? They were engaged in the daily routine of working the nets on the Sea. Suddenly and dramatically the Lord commands the brothers, “Follow me.” Today we believers are engaged in studying God’s Word and asking ourselves the questions, “What would the Lord Jesus do, and how does He want me to follow?” This lifelong pursuit is joyous when we remember He is with us always.
For today: Think often of His words, “Follow me.” What are you doing today, and who are you following?
