Follow Me and You Will Fish

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.”

While using the HEAR method (see below) consider the following questions:
  • What is your desired or chosen profession? How might Jesus use your passion to accomplish even more than you imagined in scope and impact? 
  • What would it feel like to be chosen by Jesus and singled out for a special purpose? Is it possible that he already has?
