Once the spiritual journey into Jesus has begun, Jesus expects everything of us. . . . Discipleship requires an immediate and abrupt change of life. The early disciples underwent a radical reorientation of their allegiances, their occupations, their entire lives . . . We stand in line with the apostolic community, called of God as they were. Like them, we are called to drop the nets that occupy our lives and make Christ the first priority.
