Fishers of Men

In Matthew 4:18-22 we read that Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galillee when He met two brothers, Simon (Peter) and Andrew.

He said to them "Follow me and I will make you fish people."

They left their nets and everything else they had and followed Him.

Later on He met two other brothers, James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were mending their nets with their father. He asked them to follow Him.

They left the nets and their father and followed Jesus.

These were the first disciples of Christ.

They left everything behind and followed Jesus.

Jesus does not ask us today to leave everything, our families, friends, jobs and responsibilities to follow Him.

He asks us to trust Him, to love Him and to live life as His Father in Heaven would want us to.

He asks us to witness for Him as best we can. Through the way we live, through what we say and what we do.

Even writing the occasional Blog post is witnessing for Him.


  1. Amen Victor! We should be witnessing in our daily lives in the roles that we have: spouse, sibling, friend, neighbor, passing a stranger on the street...etc.

  2. Thank you for YOUR witness, Victor!

  3. Thank you Noreen and Judy.

    Happy Advent.

    God bless.

  4. You are right Victor. Very inspirational.

    I often think about how much those Apostles had to give up, and how little God asks of us. And we struggle to even do that!

    God Bless you!

  5. Thank you Michael.

    Happy Advent.

    God bless.
