Discipleship: Following Jesus

This summer we are taking a deeper look at discipleship.

Matthew 4:19 is a working definition of what it means to be a disciple.

Jesus said: “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matt 4:19)

  • Follow Me (walk with Jesus)
  • I will make you (changed by Jesus)
  • Fishers of men (join His mission)

How do we follow Jesus when He is not here? Yes, God is everywhere- but you know what I mean, right? When Jesus called these disciples to follow Him, He was physically here on earth. They could actually, physically, see Him and walk with Him.

Are we still called to “follow Him?”

Let’s think about it this week. Is it mainly following His teachings or are we really called to follow Him?
