Jesus calls His disciples

In Matt 8:18-22, Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee and He met Peter and Andrew.  They were fishing and He called them over and said that He wanted to make them Fishers of Men.  They immediately left their nets.  He came along and did the same with James and John and they did the same as the others.  We learn that Jesus was a well known prophet and teacher, His message was that the Kingdom of God was near.  He told the people to repent and believe with all their hearts the Good News.  Jesus called His disciples to be Fishers of Men.  It is beautiful to see how these men were willing to give up all to follow Jesus Christ.  Peter put it this way, "Where can we go, only you have the words of eternal life."  There is some irresistible about Jesus that when we first meet him, the first thing we want to do is follow Him.  It was an act of faith and obedience on the part of the disciples to leave all and follow Jesus.  We must be willing to do the same.  Jesus taught the word from Peter’s boat.  Jesus was with them and Peter was reminded of His sin.  He was and so we will be as well.  When we come into the presence of Jesus we must be willing to get rid of all our sins and follow Him.
