MONDAY, JANUARY 13TH
Mark 1, 14-20:
“Come with me and I will make you fishers of men… immediately they left their nets and followed him.”
The preaching of Jesus in St. Mark’s Gospel begins with an invitation to follow him and to convert, to change one’s mentality and life by following him.
He 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.
Let Jesus make you “fishers of men” and send you out into 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 every day.
