17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
One of the reasons we become followers of Jesus Christ is to declare to the lost that there’s hope in the Son of God. To share the gospel of the cross which is repentance, to change your mind and believe in Jesus. Once you are restored in right relations with God you will start to do God’s will. All we have to rely on is the Word of God, our anchor that keeps us from believing in a lie.
