Matthew 4:18-22

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And 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, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him. [1]

 

The simple words “follow me” is what called the disciples into action.  But was it just the word?  I think not.  I do believe the power of the Holy Spirit was upon Jesus and this with His words “follow me” brought them into action.  We cannot discount the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

I pray: O Lord, while you have not called me like you called the disciples, you have called me into the faith.  You have personally called me into the ministry through “the call” process of the church.  Help me to serve you and to follow you.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
