Preparing for Sunday: Following Jesus
What does it look and feel like?
Is it a simple process or complex?
How might we count ourselves a disciples of Jesus Christ?
These are questions which many have asked and wondered about. For everyone who asks the question the answer might look slightly different. But all of them share one common element, Jesus calls us to be his disciples. No, we do not hear his voice as those first disciples once did. But Jesus us call us all the same.
At its simplest we only need to follow. Just as those first disciples did. They left their nets and took up a new calling beside Jesus. We are also called to seek out the lost and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Text: Matthew 4: 12-23
