When Jesus calls His first disciples, they clearly recognize something unique and new in Him. They leave everything to follow Jesus. They recognize that God is at work in the life of Jesus and in their own.

Am I prepared to make a sacrifice today to respond to God’s call? What am I willing to leave behind to follow Jesus? Am I ready to do my part to serve others?

O God, may my willingness to respond to Your plan include an acceptance that I may be required to make sacrifices. Grant me a courageous heart.
