Mark 1: 14-20

Called to Jesus

John has been arrested and Jesus is in Galilee, spreading the good news of God. By the Sea of Galilee, Jesus meets two fishermen casting their nets. He says, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” The two immediately join Jesus and soon they greet two more fishermen who also drop everything and go along.

Imagine such snap decisions! What is it that makes four strong adults so abruptly change the course of their lives to follow what must be a Call? Simon and Andrew, James and John become the first disciples.

Why choose people who fish? Someone said, “A fisherman reaches across worlds, inserting himself with skill and cunning into a world that no human could inhabit.” Others have said fishing is the most hopeful of all occupations.

Ask yourself, “Am I the fisher or the fish?”
