13. Come Follow Me
Starting a Journey with Jesus, Day 13 (Matthew 4:18-22)
Jesus invited two sets of brothers, all fishermen, to come and journey with him. You are invited to continue the journey too.
Walking beside Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were throwing their nets into the lake, for their work was fishing. Jesus said to them, “Follow after me. I’ll make you a fisher of men.” Right away they left their nets and followed him.
A little ways further he saw another pair of brothers, James and John, Zebedee’s sons. They were sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, mending their fishnets, and Jesus called them to follow. They immediately left behind the boat and their father and followed him. (Matthew 4:18-22)
