This is week 4 of our series “The Real Jesus.” Everything God wanted to say to humanity was said in the person of Jesus. Everything He did while on earth exemplifies the will of God toward us. When He healed all the diseases, it showed He wants our lives to be healed. When He set people free, it showed He wants us free from oppression. When He taught, it showed that He wants us to know truth. This week we will discuss the meaning in His calling people to follow Him.
Matthew 4:18–22 ESV - 18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
Ecclesiastes 1:1–2 NLT - 1 These are the words of the Teacher, King David’s son, who ruled in Jerusalem. 2 “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!”
We are one week from Easter. Who is one person you can reach out to and invite to celebrate the resurrection of Christ?
