The Call

Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Mark 1:17

The call of the early disciples echoes in our hearts when we turn to Christ. We have been chosen to follow after the footsteps of Jesus. We have been commissioned to tell others about the life-saving power of the gospel. When we make it our goal to know our Lord and to follow after His ways, spreading the good news comes naturally. When we are full of Jesus, we spill over into other people's lives. When we live the message, we become proclaimers of the message both by our example and by the words we communicate. God has called us to follow after Him.

Let's ask the Holy Spirit to fill us afresh and anew. Let's make it our goal to live out the Scriptures in our daily lives. Let's ask the Father to fill us with a passion for souls. The disciple's dropped their nets and followed Jesus. Let's lay aside everything that hinders us from His call on our lives. And let's run after Him with complete abandon.
