Jesus Calls the First Disciples
Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men. And immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him.
On our stage in the MegaZone, we dressed up as the disciples and Jesus. (Check out our pictures!) We saw the disciples mending their nets and working at their jobs and fishermen. Jesus called two sets of brothers – Andrew and Simon; John and James. All of them immediately left their boats, their nets, their jobs, their families, and followed Jesus. Could we do the same thing? How can we follow Jesus and become “fishers of men?” How about coming to church on Sundays and inviting our friends? What about reading our Bibles and telling others about Jesus? How about doing something for someone who needs you? There are many ways to follow Jesus.
We are making Valentine gifts! (Lots of painting and planting.) Don’t miss out on a chance to show someone you love them. KidZone starts @ 10am every Sunday. See you there!
