Immediately

There are some choices in life that we should take a lot of time pondering upon before we jump in.  We should weigh all the pros and cons considering whether it’s the right thing to do or not.  I suppose when it comes to following Jesus there is a weighing of the pros and cons as well.  The first disciples had the same issue.  They met Jesus and they knew in their heart there was something different about Him.  Matthew 4:22 tells us that when these fishermen came to the conclusion that this Jesus very well could be the Messiah, they had to make a decision.  “Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.”  Of course they had no idea what the future held, but immediately they made a decision.  What about us, what is it Jesus is calling us to?  Maybe you’ve had one foot in the boat and one wanting to follow Jesus.  So, maybe it’s time to immediately follow Jesus and get involved in the adventure of a lifetime.
