Mark 1, 14-20:
“Come with me and I will make you fishers of men… they immediately left their nets and followed him. ”
The preaching of Jesus in the Gospel of St. Mark begins with an invitation to follow and to conversion, to change one’s mentality and life by following him.
He invites us to steep ourselves in the Gospel because to the extent that the Gospel is our norm of life, this life of ours will change.
How the life of these first followers of Jesus changed: from fishers of fish to fishers of men.
Let Jesus make you a “fisher of men” and send you out onto the “seas of the world” to fish.
Ask the Lord today for the strength to leave your “nets”, to leave everything that entangles you and prevents you from following him.
Let your life become more transparent of the Gospel each day.
