From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And He saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, He saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed Him. And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. (Mat 4:17-23)
Our Lord calls us to make disciples, not converts for the Pastor or deacons to disciple. We are to be in His Word, and proclaiming the message of Hope to this lost and dying world. We are to share Christ, and our faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, so that those who are lost may be saved. We are to leave all that is of this world, and follow Him as committed disciplined followers of the Master.
Our Lord, Jesus Christ, calls us to a life in Him and He in us. He calls us to minister to the hurting and in need, as He provides. He commands us to grow in His Word and in Love disciple one another. He has commissioned us to go and tell the Gospel, and as we go, share the Good News of Jesus Christ to all who will hear and believe, that in believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
