Bible Notes

Matthew 4:18-22 (14.11.19)

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.

What a new leader does first says something about their character and vision. Amongst Jesus’ first actions is going to people and inviting them to come and follow him – Jesus’ aim is to create a movement of people, moving in the direction he leads them.

Jesus, help me hear your call today.
