TODAY’S TOPIC: THE HIGHEST CALLING
READ: MATTHEW 4:18-22
18 As Jesus waw, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
Anglican Daily Fountain 3rd January 2023 STUDY:
God knows you; He knows your strength and weakness. He has a plan for you and if you obey Him, He will work out His purpose for your life. Jesus told Peter and Andrew to leave their fishing business and follow Him so that He would make them fishers of men. He also called James and John – the sons of Zebedee – for the same assignment (verses 21-22). When these men were called, they did not make excuses as to why they would not answer the call rather they left at once and followed.
You are called to help in the works of the kingdom. Trust has been bestowed upon you to make disciples for Christ and God expects you to bring those people you are living with into His kingdom. He expects you to influence the genuine repentance of all your co-workers, students, friends and family members. Do not betray this great trust. Set targets for yourself and work towards your soul-winning target by constantly evaluating your progress. However, ensure that you first surrender your life to Jesus so that you do not end up working for Him without walking with him
PRAYER: Dear Lord consecrate me for Your service in Jesus’ name. Amen.
