    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:20

    Ellos entonces, dejando luego las redes, le siguieron.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 4:20

    Verse 20. They straightway left their
    nets] A change, as far as it respected secular things, every way to their disadvantage. The proud and the profane may exult and say, "Such preachers as these cannot be much injured by their sacrifices of secular property-they have nothing but nets, &c., to leave." Let such carpers at the institution of Christ know, that he who has nothing but a net, and leaves that for the sake of doing good to the souls of men, leaves his ALL: besides, he lived comfortably by his net before; but, in becoming the servant of all for Christ's sake, he often exposes himself to the want of even a morsel of bread. See on chap. xix. 27.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. And they straightway left their
    nets , etc.] That is, as soon as he had called them, they left their worldly employment, and followed him; they gave up themselves to his service, and became his disciples; they not only left their nets, but their fishing boats, and fishing trade, and all that belonged to it, even all their substance; and also their relations, friends, and acquaintance, (see Matthew 19:27) which shows what a mighty power went along with the words and call of Christ; and what a ready, cheerful, and voluntary subjection this produces, wherever it takes place.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-22 - When
    Christ began to preach, he began to gather disciples, who shoul be hearers, and afterwards preachers of his doctrine, who should be witnesses of his miracles, and afterwards testify concerning them. He went not to Herod's court, not to Jerusalem, among the chief priest and the elders, but to the sea of Galilee, among the fishermen. The same power which called Peter and Andrew, could have wrought upon Anna and Caiaphas, for with God nothing is impossible. But Christ choose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. Diligence in a honest calling is pleasing to Christ, and it is no hinderance to a holy life. Idle people are more open to the temptations of Satan than to the calls of God. It is a happy and hopeful thing to see children carefu of their parents, and dutiful. When Christ comes, it is good to be found doing. Am I in Christ? is a very needful question to as ourselves; and, next to that, Am I in my calling? They had followe Christ before, as common disciples, Joh 1:37; now they must leave their calling. Those who would follow Christ aright, must, at his command leave all things to follow him, must be ready to part with them. Thi instance of the power of the Lord Jesus encourages us to depend upo his grace. He speaks, and it is done.
