They laid down their nets and followed Him...

‘Leave your boats and follow Me.’ Why did Jesus call two fishermen to follow Him? Was the question our preacher Andy asked us this morning at the Eucharist Service. The fishermen appeared to have no choice, they just laid down their nets and followed Him. Even today, we are all being called by God, it’s a vocation and the church is calling each one of us to follow Jesus, it’s a calling to help the church expand into the world. And why were the two fishermen chosen, asked Andy? And why are we being called? Andy went on to tell us how many years ago he felt that he was being called to follow Jesus, but as he was a lorry driver who was away from home six days a week, he had no time for anything very much, and yet gradually over time, he changed his work so that he found he had more time to devote not only to his family, but to God. Andy ended his talk by saying that we can ignore God as much as we like, but if He wants us, He will never give up calling us, we have no choice, for God will surely get us to follow Him in the end…
