John and James were in their boat with their dad preparing to go fishing (Matthew 4:21). Not a convenient time for Jesus to call them! And yet when they heard his voice, they immediately and without hesitation walked away from their dad’s businesss; from their chosen career, from their plans for economic stability. It must have seemed a crazy decision at the time. And yet had they remained, none of us would know their name today. Because of their immediate obedience, they became world changers.
Lord this year, may my obedience to you be as immediate and unreserved.
PS. If you haven’t already, I invite you to download the pdf with a bible reading plan from the Mavuno website and join the many of us who are on the adventure of learning to listen for Control Tower’s instructions through 2011. Have a great day!
