Mark 1:16-20

The first people Jesus calls to be his disciples are fishermen--Simon, Andrew, James and John, and he calls them with this simple statement. "'Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men'" (Mark 1:17). Next thing we see is each of these men abruptly abandoning their nets and boats to begin a new life journey following Jesus.

So what can we learn about being a Christ-follower from these men? What does being a follower or disciple of Christ mean to you? What does it look like in your life? Tami

P.S. Today on Back to the Bible, we begin a brand new series, Following Jesus, with Bible Teacher Dr. John Munro. He brings us some great teaching on how to live as a disciple of Christ, so be sure to listen. (You'll also want to hear an exciting announcement, so don't miss it.)

hi! for me following Jesus is't just being simple enough to talk with people in the streets and pray as oft as possible with them and be sure they know they can receive Jesus, and pray with them is possible. To day I've met a friend of mine and she received Jesus right there in the street.

The Examples are endless. When you decide to follow Christ, your life is completely and forever changed.

If your life looks like it did before you profess Cchrist, read MAtt 7:21-23 and reconsider your "commitment'

Grace and Peace,

Your right Lowell, not only our words and prayers. should lead people to Christ, but our
thoughts and actions. Put Jesus first in your life in everything we do

These four invested themselves entirely in Jesus. They left everything else to follow Him. He was the #1 priority in their lives, and all that they were was surrendered to Him. For us, likewise, nothing less than a total commitment will suffice.

We're told that all of the law and the prophets is summarized by the command to love the Lord with all of our everything, and our neighbors as ourselves. This means that, as the Lord has loved us, we're to turn around and love others just the same. We're to invest in their lives, and, in word and deed, put Christ on display through our relationships with them.
