Too many of us try to hide the implications in Jesus' invitation to follow him. We follow him to get something here and now. But we must be willing to focus on the mission he gave us and fix our eyes on the eternal promises. He is the reward, and He is worthy of us giving up everything. Every trial has a purpose, and every blessing is to enable us to fulfill our mission. Once we forget about the mission, God will ask for our attention to get us back on track. Hold on to Jesus, it's worth it!
Mark 1:17-18 NLT
Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him.
