Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
– Matthew 4:19–20

When God appears, He calls. These two actions are related. When the Lord appeared to Peter, Peter didn’t leave his nets until the Lord called him, saying, “Follow Me” (Matt. 4:19–20). When a great light shone and Saul fell to the ground, he didn’t just stand up and praise the Lord. Trembling and astonished, he asked, “What shall I do, Lord?” Jesus answered, “Get up and go on into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do” (Acts 22:10). The appearing brings in God’s calling, which is His living word.
