Thoughts and Reflections

Come, Follow Me

Matthew 4:19

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

20140530-104833-38913743.jpgJesus went around calling His Disciples. He called them from the routine – everyday – work they were doing – to the extraordinary – spiritual work of following Him.

Today’s passage gives us an example of His calling on His Disciples. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Have we answered the call by Jesus to come and follow Him? Are we His disciples? Do we follow Jesus? If we heard the call – how did we respond? Are we still responding today? Have we given Him our all? Are we still struggling with the call?

Are we catching people today for Jesus? When is the last time you were instrumental in helping someone to follow Jesus? Can you remember a time when you caught someone for Jesus? Is Jesus still calling people today to come and follow Him?

How do we catch people for Jesus? Has Jesus given us lessons? What does the Bible say about fishing for people? Are we all – as believers – disciples – called to fish for people?

Today’s devotional thought is more about some souls searching on the part of each reader? What is Jesus saying to you today?  Have we responded to His call?

Just something to think about today as you go on your way.
