Jesus’ disciples gave up everything to follow Him, and He invites us to do the same. He calls out to each one of us to swim beyond the shore and the shallows, to trust that He will be with us in the deep. It’s the place where we’re no longer in control, making room for God to do what only He can through our lives. We may feel uncertain at first, but He promises not to let us drown. Are you willing to stop playing it safe and go all the way in with Him?

Luke 5:1-11 NIV
One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the
people were crowding around him and listening to the word of
God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the
fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats,
the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from
shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat. When
he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep
water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered,
“Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But
because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done
so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to
break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and
help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began
to sink. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said,
“Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his
companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and
so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.
Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish
for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything
and followed him.
“May you be covered in the dust of your rabbi.”
The prerequisite for becoming a disciple of Jesus was, when He said,
“Come follow Me”, you walked His way.

John 6:67-69 TPT
So Jesus said to his twelve, “And you—do you also want to
leave?” Peter spoke up and said, “But Lord, where would we go? No
one but you gives us the revelation of eternal life. We’re fully
convinced that you are the Anointed One, the Son of the Living
God, and we believe in you!”
I’m familiar with MY way, but I’m now committed to following HIS way.
