Do What You Know (Matthew 4)

As Jesus gathers his first disciples he gathers to himself young men who are the head of a fishing business. Peter, the chief fisherman, would have been the oldest and probably in charge of this family business. Jesus asks them to put down their nets and follow him, but he puts it in terms they can understand. He says “follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” That’s how God calls us, to use the skills we know and are good at for his kingdom. What are you good at? Think about that… how can you use that for his glory? Your abilities are a gift from God, but they are also a gift for God, to be used as a part of his church to bless the world. How will you follow Jesus today?

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
