Matthew 4, 18-22:
“Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Immediately they left their nets and followed him.”
The preaching of Jesus in the Gospels begins with an invitation to follow and to conversion.
To change mentality and life by following him.
Jesus invites us to immerse ourselves in the Gospel, because to the extent that the Gospel is our norm of life, this life of ours will change.
How did the life of these first followers of Jesus change: from fishers of fish to fishers of men and women
How many people are struggling amidst the waves of doubt, of unbelief, of indifference, of passivity…!
How many people are shipwrecked in seas of poverty, of misery, of ignorance…!
Let’s go fishing in those seas together with Jesus!
This is what the Lord invites us to do today: “Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men and women”.
He invites us to be vigilant and to help the many men and women who need a “lifeline”.
Let Jesus make you fishers of people and send you out into the troubled seas of the world.
Ask the Lord today for the strength to leave your nets, to leave everything that prevents you from following him, to let your life become more transparent of the Gospel every day and to give meaning to other lives that are victims of so many “shipwrecks”.
