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 calls us today to be “fishers of men”, do you hear the call? We have the perfect opportunity today to bring people to the Lord. But we must “leave our nets and follow Him”. Are you ready to do that? Are you willing to leave your old life behind and give your all to Christ, just as the Apostles did?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I give my life to you to use as you need. May I cast your net and become a true fisher of men, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
