Matthew 4:18-22

As Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea--for they were fishermen. And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fish for people." Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

    • In the middle of any ordinary day Jesus walks by, sees me, singles me out from the crowd, speaks to me and invites my discipleship. This pattern is repeated every day in Sacred Space!
    • What attracts me to Jesus? What helps me to respond generously to him? Am I a close follower of his, or do I keep my eye on him only occasionally?

    • The call of the disciples is rooted in the call of Jesus, and this call is to change their lives for ever. The disciples are not only to hear the word of God but act on it. So the first disciples leave everything and follow Him. Jesus will go on to teach the disciples a new way of life, for they cannot be open to the work of God unless they have their ears opened by His word.
    • Your words are spirit Lord and they are life. Lord, teach us your ways, Lord you called those to come follow you just as they were, and leaving everything they did just that. Jesus you do not ask that we leave everything but just that we follow you in our daily walk through life, and with you to guide us how can we fail...

    • Jesus recognises our skills: he takes them and redirects them to a higher cause, so that we can serve others through them. I ask to see that I have my personal mission, given me by Jesus. I am part of the Sacred Space network – good people who try to be Good News wherever they may be.
    • I pray: ‘Jesus, show me what I need to leave behind in order to be a good disciple. Do not let me fall far behind you and lose sight of you. Keep me close. Thank you for these times of prayer, and for inviting me to share a meal with you in the Eucharist.’

    • Jesus called the fishermen, speaking to them in terms they recognised. Jesus calls me as I am, wanting me to use my skills and abilities to draw others to life.
    • Peter, Andrew, James and John responded to Jesus immediately. I think of how slow my reactions are, see what holds me back and talk to Jesus about it.
