18 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.
19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
God Is About OBEDIENCE! The main teaching of the bible whtch is " The Word of God " is obedience. from this chapter we can see the emphasis put on obedience. first off at start off with Jusus bening led of the Spirit, in verse 1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.Here in chapter 4 it is all about obedience and eatch instance when Jusus was tempted by the devil to do someing contrary to biblical principles and teatching. Jusus refuse by saying, "it is written", meaning that there is a written biblical foundation of obedience to God will that shound not be broken by anyone.
The devil was defeated by Jusus obedience to the written Word Of God . We to can have victory an any spiritual struggle by our obedience to this same foundation of obedience to God written Word.Peter, and Andrew is
our example of obedience to the call of the Lord to be disciple (definitions dis-ci-pie 1 a pupil or follower of any teacher or school 2 an early follower of Jesus, esp. one of the Apostles ) They give up the only way of life
they know Mark Chapter 10 verse 28 Peter is quoted as saying we have left all to follower Jesus
Mark Chapter 10 verse 28 - 30
28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that
hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children,
or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren,
and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in
the world to come eternal life.
we to is call to be pupil of the Lord and give up the only life we know all so, to be followers of His example and teaching . verse 28,29 and 30 is for us also
