Bible Notes

Matthew 4:18-22 (07.02.18)

Matthew 4:18-22 NIV
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. [19] “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” [20] At once they left their nets and followed him. [21] Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, [22] and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

There’s something about Jesus that is compelling. There’s something striking too about the immediate reaction of the disciples. He calls, they follow. It’s not that they don’t have questions, it’s not that they’ve got their faith sorted, they do and they haven’t, but Jesus is bigger than these concerns. They trust him despite them.

Father, give me the faith to see that Jesus is bigger than my doubts and lack of knowledge!
