"And He saith unto them: Follow Me."
- Matthew 4:19
 
This was the short but significant command which our LORD directed to Peter and Andrew, the two fishermen brothers, as He called them to be His disciples. To follow Christ means, first and foremost, that we accept Him as our personal Savior and Redeemer. Having found Christ and believing in Him as our Savior from sin, we have a paece in our hearts that passes all understanding. That peace we can have no matter where we are and no matter how much noise and confusion there is about us.
 
The call of Jesus, "Follow Me" also presents a challenge to live a courageous and heroic life, but there are those who imagine that Christianity is for sissies, that for folks who are . . .

The call of Jesus, "Follow Me" also presents a challenge to live a courageous and heroic life, but there are those who imagine that Christianity is for sissies, that for folks who are muscular and strong, real "he-man" it has no appeal whatsoever. People who think and speak like that do not know what Christianity is and what it demands. It doesn't take any courage to do what the masses do; but it takes a great deal of courage and strength, in a wicked world, to follow Jesus uncompromisingly in everything.
 
Christian friends, following Jesus means watching how He fished and then imitating Him. It involves reading the Scriptures and lingering over His words and deeds, learning how He caught souls. Then let us ask Jesus to make us like Him--great fishers of men.
 
      Keeping in step with the Savior,
      Living a life that is true,
      Clearly let's sound out a witness,
      Proving what God's grace can do.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY- If your not fishing for souls, you are not following the Savior.  So mend your nets with prayer, cast them in faith, and draw them with love.
