WORSHIP January 24
God’s people fish! At least that seems to be the point of the Gospel lesson on this coming Sunday.
As we continue through the time after Epiphany, stories of the call to discipleship show us the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people.
Join our Bible Study on Wednesday at 10 AM or 7:30 PM and on-line worship to learn more about your place in God’s plan.
