Leave it Behind

Leave it Behind

After the great catch of fish, we read that the disciples came ashore and left everything and followed Jesus… have you ever wondered what they actually left?

Was it just the fish, nets, boats, their occupation… or things like their pride, their programs, their materials, and their manuals—those things we often bring with us as we attempt to follow Him. I know that all of us who lead ministries, however big or small they are, often have things that make up who we are. I know they are important to us, but sometimes they can weigh us down in following where God might want us to go.

Here’s where this matters: If you’re serious about following Jesus, you’re going to have to leave something behind. What does that look like for you?
