And they immediately left their nets, and followed Him….

“And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.”
Matthew 4:18-20


“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

Matthew 16:24-26

    Thank you for sharing! I love how it says “they straightaway”, not a month later, day later, or even 5 mins. later, but that same moment left it all to follow Him. I had never noticed that small but very significant word!

      :) That word{the disciple’s reaction to the call of Christ} “straightaway” is my second favorite part of this portion of scripture! My favorite part is the call of Christ. :) I first rejoice over the call of Christ to follow Him then I rejoice that the supernatural call of Christ caused these fisher men to immediately leave their nets to follow their Savior! The same takes place in our Salvation. :) have a wonderful day, Rosi!!
