Dear Jesus, I have heard your call to follow you. I know you are worth leaving it all! Please renew my desire to continue being faithful in this call to surrender my life to your will.
8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”
9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken,
10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”
11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
The disciples dropped everything (including their businesses) to follow Christ.
There’s no doubt that Jesus is worth following! He forgives my sins, gives me new life, loves me, solves my deepest problems, comforts me, gives me security, and fulfills me.
You, Christ, have spoken to my heart. Your love draws me; I put my trust completely in you.
You are the one who draws me to you to see how valuable you are. Your beauty and grace overwhelm me!
13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,
14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
