Matthew 4:18-20 – “Don’t forget” (July 27)

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Wednesday. July 27th. The 4th day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today are Matthew 4:18-20.

Matthew 4:18
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

They left their nets and followed Him. They left what they knew to follow Yeshua. Can you leave what you are familiar with if Yeshua said to? If He leads you down a path that is, let’s say, unpopular, will you follow? Regardless of what others say, will you stay faithful to what He told you?

You see, the question is, are you following Him? Are your eyes on Him? It shouldn’t matter what anyone else is doing or saying. What matters is if you are following Him. I find it interesting how Yeshua had to remind Peter to follow Him even after the resurrection and not be concerned with John.

Our verses today are John 21:22
Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”

Do you need to be reminded? He said “Follow me.”

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
