“At once they left their nets and followed him”

Nets were prized possessions in that time. Most of a fisherman’s life was spent taking care of the nets. But Jesus does not need a net to fish for people. Jesus does not hold people in a net, confined and trapped.

The way is the way of freedom. Freedom as it was designed by God.

God, thank you for setting me free. Give me the courage to set aside the things that I think are important so I may follow you.


-Matt E.
