After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they abandoned their nets and followed him. He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.
Jesus is calling us today to come and follow Him. He wants us to join the Apostles and spread His word. He has given us eternal life, we must tell others of the gifts we have been given. The time is near, we do not know when, but we must act as if it is tomorrow. Are you ready?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, lead me and guide to the people that need to hear your word. Give me the words to use and the gift of discernment on when to use them. In Jesus’ holy name I ask all this, Amen.
Teach me your ways, O Lord
