Our journey with Jesus begins when we are willing to drop our own agenda and submit to His authority. Our natural tendency is to forge our own way. But because of His compelling power in our lives, there comes a moment when we realise we need to do what He asks ‘because He says so’. We let down our nets, even if we think that it’s the wrong thing to do. Submitting our lives to Christ’s authority, whether or not we understand it, is the key to becoming all He created us to be.
