DISCIPLESHIP THOUGHT – 26th January 2020 – Matthew 4 : 12-23
How are we to interpret and to understand the word ‘immediately’ in verses
22 and 30 of our text? Did the disciples really just drop everything and follow Jesus never to return? And if they did, what should our response be to the call of God on our lives? One way to think about this is to think about God calling us to live differently and more adventurously in every moment.
We can think about micro-calls to respond differently to each small event in our life, to approach each encounter with another person being called to see them as a child of God. And in each moment we can ‘immediately’ leave the other options and the past behind.
