3 short compelling, calling words

Passage: Matthew 4:12-23

Jesus calls out for people - people with open hands and walking feet toward a new heaven and a new Earth that is making its way here. People with ears to hear, hearts to embrace and feet to follow.

Jesus still seems to think that common folk like us have something to do with this reign of God breaking in. Christ keeps on calling me - calling you - calling with those three compelling words, Come, follow me. And he adds, "I will make you fishers of people".

Come, follow me. Today - as one journey as church ends and a new one dawns, will you drop your nets - will you leave the past behind - and with your eyes and hearts focused on Christ - will you follow?
