'From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”' Matthew 4:17

  • A true disciple is not first a learner or reader of his words.  You are a doer. In v19 Jesus says, “Come follow me”. 
  • The first command of Jesus’ public ministry was, “repent”.
    • Jesus wants an inward change because nothing else will stick if you don’t first address YOU
  • Your actions need to be immediate
    • v20 “Immediately they left their nets and followed him.”
    • A friend’s wife was giving a sermon where she shared this same advice, because it’s what she did.  Drugs, alcohol, miserable. Meets a janitor at the church who tells her to repent and go and tell everyone that she now believes in Jesus.
    • Repent is “to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life.”
