Immediately….

Standard

“And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’

Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.

Going a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets.

Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him.

They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach.”  Mark 1:17-21 NASV

Jesus performed all His miracles immediately. He called His disciples, and they came immediately. There was no waiting, the men He called (Peter, Andrew, James and John) that day left their nets and followed Him. When Christ performed miracles of healing, it was immediate. The lame could walk and the blind could see, immediately.

Immediately. Jesus brought Simon, Andrew, James and John to Capernaum and immediately on the Sabbath He went to the synagogue and began to teach. Mark 1:21 Jesus Christ knew what He was called to do. His life was not spent waiting around for the authority of men to give Him permission. And yet, that is what I do. I wait. Wait to teach until someone tells me I have the right. Wait to share the gospel, hoping for a sign. I have already received permission from the Lord.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
