Gone Fishing

This is my work here, but I can’t do it alone.

I need you to come and help me, to share with me in all I need to do.

Will you come?  Let me teach you, show you, empower you?

This is my invitation, to come with me, work with me, be a part of what I am doing.

“Come with me” he said, and what could I do?

This wasn’t a day trip,
but a life change,
a journey to something new,
to be someone different,
to work with God.

“Come with me”,
the invitation remains.

He will make me what he needs me to be.

I come
willing to follow,
ready to learn learn,
with you.

Mark 1:14-20 (CEV)

Jesus Begins His Work

14 After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee and told the good news that comes from God. 15 He said, “The time has come! God’s kingdom will soon be here. Turn back to God and believe the good news!”

Jesus Chooses Four Fishermen

16 As Jesus was walking along the shore of Lake Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew. They were fishermen and were casting their nets into the lake.17 Jesus said to them, “Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish.” 18 Right then the two brothers dropped their nets and went with him.

19 Jesus walked on and soon saw James and John, the sons of Zebedee. They were in a boat, mending their nets. 20 At once Jesus asked them to come with him. They left their father in the boat with the hired workers and went with him.
