And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed. (Matthew 4:19-20)
I have always been challenged by Jesus’ call to Follow Me and Fish for Men. Jesus calls Peter, Andrew, James and John — and they leave their nets to fish for men. It’s a powerful metaphor.
Read just a few verses later in verse 25: “And great multitudes followed Him from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.”
Multitudes followed Jesus from all over the region!
This is a powerful vision:
Great Multitudes following Jesus from every people and region on this planet!
How will this vision become reality?
When every believer in loving obedience to Jesus starts helping others to follow Jesus!
Today’s Missional Challenge
Help others to follow Jesus and help others to help others to follow Jesus!
