And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
Luke 5:11 KJV
The lives of Peter, Andrew, James and John
Transformed when Jesus said ‘Come follow Me.’
How can someone refuse when spirit’s drawn,
Just like a sailor’s hunger for the sea?
There comes a moment in each person’s life
When love demands you leave it all behind.
That call of soul that cuts you like a knife;
That death of self to which you were confined.
The Savior beckons – all else disappears;
The world that you once knew just falls away.
The life before was measured once in years
But now this moment is the only way.
Drop all that you are doing. Follow Him.
If your ship moves too slow, jump in and swim.
