Today I was blessed enough to be able to share with the First Priority at Petal Middle School. I want to share with you some of the words I shared with them.
I read from Matthew 4:18-22:
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. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 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. Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
Jesus sees Peter and Andrew and James and John, and this is His command to them. Follow me. He doesn’t tell them where they are going. He doesn’t go into great detail about what they will do and how they will do it.
He doesn’t answer any questions.
In fact, He doesn’t take any questions. He simply says, Follow Me.
And they did. They followed Him. And they went all over the world, telling folks about Jesus.
That’s our call today. To follow Him. Now following Him will look different for each of us. For some of us, that may me for the the first time placing our full faith in Him.
For others, it may mean entering into ministry.
For others, it may mean reading your bible more. Praying more.
For others, it may mean standing up for the little guy.
I don’t know what it means for you today. But I do know this. Each of us, today, no matter where we are, that’s our command. Follow Him.
Today, may we follow, wherever it is that He is leading!
