Bible Challenge – Matthew 4

“Jesus called out to them, ‘Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!’ 20 And they left their nets at once and followed him.” v. 19-20 (NLT)

Jesus was asking these fisherman to drop everything they knew to follow Him.  The call is the same for us. The essence of being a Christ Follower means that we have dropped everything that we once knew, once held onto, once perused, in order to follow Him and go where He goes.  Sadly, many times instead of dropping everything, we try to hang on to somethings.  It’s almost as if we say, “I’ll follow you Jesus as long as you don’t ask me to do this, or give up that.” And the power struggle begins.

Jesus simple call requires surrendering everything.  It means that we recklessly abandon all we know to chase after Him.  It’s a commitment that requires dedication, discipline, and action. Have you given up everything to Follow Christ … or is there something you are hanging on to?

Today, Have you dropped everything to follow Jesus, or are there areas of your life that you are still hanging on too?
