Scriptures: Mark 1:16-20, Romans 10:13-15
If Jesus was here today, what would He see and what would He say? He wouldn't see a church building. Instead He would see a boat. In the church, He would see two types of people--fishermen and fish. You and I are one or the other. We have no reason to doubt that the very first thing He would say to us would be the very first words He spoke to the people who became His disciples... "As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men'" (Mark 1:16-17).
"A Christian is a follower of Jesus. That is where the Christian life begins and ends--following Jesus in life and following Jesus through death." --Dr. Merritt
