As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him. He walked along from there and saw two other brothers, James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat, with their father Zebedee, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed him.
Jesus is calling all of us to be Fishers of Men. Have you answered His call? Have you accepted His challenge? We are called, just as He called His Apostles. Do you have the faith they did? The faith to say yes to His call?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I always say yes to your call. You will not call me to something I cannot handle, so may I never fear the task you have for me. I want to be a Fisher of Men for you. In Jesus’ name, Amen
Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
