June 29, 2022 - Good Morning! It's Wednesday, June 29.
Last night, 32 men met in Center for a community Men's Ministry Fish Fry. Good fellowship and Great food. We've got some world-class fishermen in our church family and it was ALL YOU COULD EAT! I woke up this morning still full! And thinking about Matthew 4:18-19. You know the passage -
"As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Jesus' ministry was surrounded by a culture of fishing. At least seven of the original twelve disciples made their living in that way. And many of the events of His life were connected with boats and water and fishing - not to mention many of His parables and sermons.
And so, the call that Jesus made to Peter and Andrew, is the very same call that He makes to me and to you. May we respond boldly, as they did -
"And they at once left their nets and followed Him".
Meet you back here tomorrow,
