In this Sunday’s Gospel reading, Matthew 4: 18-23, Jesus Calls His First Disciples. We hear about  the calling of the apostles Peter and Andrew and James and John is recounted. The Gospel is short, but very specific: both pairs left their nets (left everything) and followed Jesus. We must have this sort of dedicated beginning in order to endure to the end. It gets hard in the middle, and if we do not begin with dedication, and constantly remember our original dedication, we will never make it to salvation.
