And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him. Mark 1:20 ESV

The price is the cost of something, that which is lost, damaged, or given up in order to accomplish or get something. It usually determines value. Our text reveals the call to follow Jesus has a very high price tag. 
Beloved, the sons of Zebedee left their father, fishing boat and nets, they sacrificed everything they had, literally they died in order to follow Jesus. Whoever will answer the call “Follow Me!”, must pay the price of sacrificing all that will stand between him and fulfilling the call. There must be a complete abandonment of your old way of life, to be able to excel. Anything less is unacceptable because complete devotion is required. What sacrifices are you  making, what price are you paying for the call?
Grace upon grace!
