Mark 1:17-18/Immediately

Mark 1:17. ‘”Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18. At once (immediately) they left their nets and followed him.’❤

I love the book of Mark. It hit me when I re-read it this time that the word “immediately” is used repeatedly. Jesus was very action-oriented. He immediately healed. He spoke and immediately things happened.

The urgency of being “immediate” about obeying Jesus and the Holy Spirit has not been lost on me. It is imperitive we that we respond immediately to the urging and correction of the Holy Spirit. I have been working on dropping everything eight when I hear God tell me something I need to do or work on. And as I do that, He speaks more to me. The key is to have a contrite heart and obey willingly and immediately. And this is a life worth living for our loving God never lets us down. ❤❤❤

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”❤
