People respond to Jesus in different ways, but we should respond to him like Peter, Andrew, James, and John, who followed Jesus “immediately.” For Jesus is the “great light” to humanity prophesied by Isaiah. Even today Jesus invites people to follow him to serve in the kingdom of heaven. Let us follow the example of the first disciples and follow Jesus without delay.
Peter and the others were fishermen when Jesus called them, and he told them they’d be “fishers of men.” In the same way, God will use the talents and interests he has given us, so living as stewards in the kingdom does not mean we have to leave behind everything we enjoy. Instead, living as Jesus’ disciple will provide a rich and satisfying life.
