Mt 4:22 They immediately left . . . their father. At once. They had received a higher call. No earthly preference can excuse a rejection of the call of Christ.

    Verse 17: Jesus preached to people and encouraged them to repent or turn around from their bad course.
  • A disciple
    "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." God has come in the flesh to bring us salvation and redemption and life eternal. This world is under the sentence of death: Repent, and God will turn your darkness to light.
  • A disciple
    "..sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee.." How strange and terrible in fact, that this saying of the devil is so commonly accepted and believed by Christians! Jesus said that the devil has never stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. The world doesn't belong to the devil and NEVER did! He is a LIAR!
  • A disciple
    "..If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written.." As the Lord sets out on the mission given Him of His Father to teach and to preach and to deliver all who were oppressed by the devil, and complete the words and deeds by giving His life to save us; the devil is on an unyielding relentless attack against God and His Word, and can only slander and contradict and oppose the truth.
  • A disciple
    "..If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.'' The first principle of the heathen mind; which is, If there be a God.. is debunked by the truth of the Word of God. What is behind disbelief, debate and defiance, is disrespect for the commandment and our entire life being dependent upon Christ as our Saviour. Jesus subjected Himself to every temptation that is COMMON to man.
