Jesus starts His ministry, including calling disciples and performing works of wonder

(7/17) |

Verses:Mark 1:1 ~ 1:39
Key Verse:16-17. And passing beside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, Simons brother, casting a net in the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, Come after Me, and I will cause you to become fishers of men.
Topic:Jesus starts His ministry, including calling disciples and performing works of wonder
Emphasis:It was the second time that Peter and Andrew met the Lord Jesus (cf. John 1:35-42). It was probably the first time that James and John saw the Lord. In any case, when the Lord called them, they left everything to follow Him. Peter was already married at that time. They must have seen the devine glory lived out through Jesus’ excellent human virtue, so Peter wrote in 2 Peter 1:3 “He has called us by His own glory and virtue”.
Meditate:Have we seen the Lord’s glory and virtue?
Prayer:Thank the Lord that in the four gospel books we can see Your divine glory expressed through Your human virtue. I would leave everything to follow You, just like the early disciples.
Hymn:Dearest Lord, You’ve called us here
