Everyday Christian

In the Bible, in the book of Matthew chapter 4, we see the Lord Jesus calling His disciples. Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee. There, Simon Peter and his brother Andrew were casting their net into the lake. They were fishermen by trade. Jesus said to them, "Come follow me. I will make you fishers of men." The two men dropped their nets at once and followed Him.

How often during our day are we asked to make that choice? Shall we continue with our own agenda or shall we drop our net and follow Jesus? The question may come up far more often than we know. If we aren't listening, we miss our chance.

Before you know it, you will join Simon Peter, Andrew and the other apostles in becoming fishers of men.

(Matthew 4:18-20, Ephesians 6:18)
