"As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea-for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, 'Follow Me and I will make you fish for people.' And immediately they left their nets and followed Him. As He went a little farther, He saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boats mending the nets. Immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed Him" (Mark 1:16-20).
Some will cast the nets, while others mend them. Some will catch the fish, while others clean them. Some will reach out to the lonely and lost, while others come alongside them with healing and freedom. But all are called to respond to Your call, to come into alignment with the relationships You establish for Your purposes, and follow You.
Lord, call us and align us. Equip us and empower us. Give us courage to let go of anything we've been doing, no matter how productive, that's no longer the task at hand. Give us grace to arise and go and follow You wherever You lead in this great ministry of the love of people, fishing for their souls and mending their hearts. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
