The Process of Leaving Everything

May 20th, 2019 · by Tom Stuart · Relationship with God

“So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.” Luke 5:11 NIV

After a person decides to commit their life to following Jesus and has been walking with Him awhile, one realizes that leaving everything behind is more a process than a one time event.

Like the disciples, we may make the vow to leave everything behind to follow Him and do so to the best of our understanding, but discover over time there are yet more things we must leave, because “everything” has a way of expanding.

Having been seeking to follow Jesus for nearly 50 years, He still is revealing things I need to drag up into the light of the heavenly shore and choose once again to leave behind.
