The Disciple’s Continual Response

19 Jan

The Disciple’s Continual Response…

The Gospel of Matthew says the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus was walking along the Sea of Galilee; he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their fishing nets into the sea. He said to them “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The men immediately left their nets and followed Jesus. Have you wondered why they immediately left their nets to follow Jesus? In John’s gospel, Jesus appeared to Andrew first. He was told to follow Him; then Andrew went to tell Simon his brother about Jesus.

So this wasn’t the first calling for Andrew, but the second – and it would be the second that would change their lives. A true disciple does not say “yes” to God once but again and again.

So don’t live your life on yesterday’s yes but give him your yes daily; your hineni, your “Here I am Lord, send me.” Make a choice to follow Him daily.

The continual and progressive yes will change your life as if it was the first call because a disciple of God, when called of God, must always be as if it is for the first time.

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18-20

Open your day with your Hineni prayer. Say yes to His will and say yes to His calling, to a new calling, and to rise to new and higher ground.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
