In awe and fear of the miracle he had witnessed, Peter fell to his knees and begged Jesus, "Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man." Jesus replied, "Do not be afraid; henceforth, you shall be a fisher of men." When they returned to shore, Peter, Andrew, John, and James left their families and their belongings and followed Christ, becoming his disciples.
