Immediately Following Christ

I was reading about the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in Matthew 4 and these two verses stuck out to me so much. 

“And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” (V. 19-20)

I’ve read this many times but today there was one word in particular that caught my attention. “Immediately.” When Jesus calls me to something, to leave things behind, to follow Him, do I respond immediately?
Do I trust Jesus enough to know that following Him is worth everything that comes with it?

Had you read it this way before? What does it look like for you to immediately respond to Jesus in your life? What is He calling you to that you’ve been too fearful or hesitant to respond to?

Let’s be believers who are quick to respond to the Holy Spirit’s leading in our lives!
