Going Forward by Leaving Behind

"When we sense the calling of God on our lives, it creates a fork in the road. A decision must be made. We will either respond like the disciples did and follow Jesus, or we'll turn away and maintain normalcy..."

"What is the call of God upon your life? Sometimes we can't answer that question until we've answered a different one.: what is Christ calling you to leave behind? It might not be the nets or boats, but often when Christ is calling us to something, He's simultaneously calling us away from something else. In order to live at Godspeed, the disciples abandoned everything hindering them from living on mission with Christ. what is Christ calling you to forsake? What is hindering His mission from going forward through your life?"
