Come, Follow Me

Jesus is calling. Always, in every moment, he is calling you to come to him. How do you hear his voice calling? Sometimes we hear it in the dissatisfaction with how we are experiencing life. His invitations quicken hope and life within us and by faith we risk following him into a different way of living.

Mark 1:14-20 NLT
Later on, after John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee, where he preached God’s Good News. 15 “The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”

16 One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. 17 Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 18 And they left their nets at once and followed him.

19 A little farther up the shore Jesus saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat repairing their nets. 20 He called them at once, and they also followed him, leaving their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired men.
