21 Apr Matthew 4:21-22

21Going 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; and He called them.  22Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.  

Jesus gave James and John a nickname. It was long and I can barely pronounce it, but it meant sons of thunder! (Look it up in Mark 3:17) The sons of a fisherman had become fishermen as well. They were big, tough guys and they probably smelled like fish…yuck! But guess what? These big tough dudes turned to Jesus without thinking twice. They left everything behind without waiting! Are you ready to leave everything and follow Jesus?
