Thursday 27th August 2020Fishers of Men

Stanley thinks about how Jesus calls His disciples to be fishers of men. To come and follow Him, and then to go tell others of the salvation they can receive. Is Jesus calling you to follow Him today? Or to go and tell others?
Selected Scripture

Matthew 4:18–22

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”1 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
