Here are Jesus' words as found in our Gospel reading:
"As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea - for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, 'Follow me and I will make you fish for people.' And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him." Mark 1:16-20
Jesus in calling them away from their fishing business, redirected them to fish for people. They would launch into his master plan for bringing the kingdom of God to people. We also are to be involved in this same mission as those who are following Jesus. We would also need to study how Jesus approached and related to people.
May these words be a blessing as you reflect on them and as you worship this Sunday.
