Immediately


The word immediately can be defined as instantly or without delay. How often do we do things immediately? Or how often do we do things without really thinking about it? This same urgency describes each of the 12 disciples reaction to Jesus’ call. They all immediately left their nets, fields and offices to follow Him. Matthew 4:18-22 18 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 Then He said to them,“Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him. 21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him. Immediate obedience. In fact, when Jesus performed miracles and healings, the people were immediately healed. Mark 1:42, 42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed. Luke 8:44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. What would happen if we had the same faith? We feel the Spirit beckoning us to talk to someone about Christ, we turn the other way. We are put in a position to give someone hope, and we keep our mouths shut. Every day we are given opportunities to be immediately obedient to God. What will you do today to be immediately obedient? I encourage you to begin preparing yourselves to attend God’s house tomorrow. Pray for the services, teachers, pastor, children and worship. Be bold and ask God for a blessing. He always provides…
