So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed

– Luke 5:11

After witnessing the power of Jesus, they heeded the call of Jesus and gave up everything to follow Him. This really is an amazing move by the first followers of Jesus. I’m not sure I can fully grasp the weight of what actually took place when Peter, James and John here “forsook all and followed Jesus.” They literally were giving up their lives and livelihood to become “fishers of men.” It is a profound and powerful statement.
