Promise and Response

July 24, 2019

Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work.

Jesus said to them, “Come with me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.”

They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.Matthew 4:19,20, The Message version

Quite a promise: “I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.” 

Still true.

What might be a bit different is their response and ours: They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed. 

What would happen if we did that today?
