Pastor Matt Tarr
– Scripture: Mark 1:16-20
– When Jesus called His disciples, it was not a request or a suggestion or a plea. It was a command to follow Him. In the same way, Christ authoritatively calls us to us to follow Him at our salvation. But this is no small thing, as truly committing to following Jesus will cost us greatly in this present life. And yet, following Him is an imperative, and it is something which the Christian does with zeal. His call is irresistible.
