For those who know me the best, you know that I love the passages of Scripture that focus on the calling of the first disciples and their immediate response to leave everything and follow Jesus. Such is the case in today's reading from Matthew 4:21-25. This particular passage states that Jesus called James and John. They were brothers, the sons of Zebedee, and fishermen. Yet, when Jesus called out for them to follow Him this is the response recorded in Matthew 4:22 = "Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him."
