Like the fishermen, the first disciples, leaving their nets, their boats, their families, leaving their shepherd, the one crying in the wilderness, as foretold The left all and followed the one, the Messiah, the chosen son of God, left everything they knew, all they held dear left for an unknown journey, for how long they didn’t know, to where never asked. Like them, we must leave all join their journey, the unknown journey ahead to follow Christ, wherever he may lead.

They Followed Him
They belonged to John watching him in the desert, the wilderness; But they left him To follow the Christ, the Messiah incarnate Leaving all they knew for the unknown journey ahead
