How committed are we to Jesus?

Matthew 4:21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them,

22 and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.


This is quit impressive and can be mis interpreted as well. This was the family business they left. That means the security in raising their families is in jeopardy. Jesus never forced them to leave their security. These guys wanted and trusted Jesus and was all in. You cant do this by making an emotional move. One must use their logic mixed with faith in the LORD. Emotional decisions cant convert us. We must count the cost of being Jesus' disciple. I can thankfully say, I left my job, family, home in Missouri to follow Jesus here. He has been so faithful and gracious to me & my wife. It wasnt emotion that got me here. It was a commitment to be obedient to the LORDs leading. These guys were committed.
