God’s Call
Mark 1

Text: And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. Mark 1:17

Learn and Apply: God has called us to do great things for him in this new year. He wants to use us mightily to transform our families, communities, countries and the world. He wants to use as a light in the darkness. He wants to equip us for greater exploits. But for that to happen, we must answer His call. We must come after him. To become great we must follow God.

God’s call is not to use and abandon us. Man may use and discard, but not God. He is the maker of all good things, and he makes us into fishers of men. He makes us carriers of His power and glory such that we become the light of the world and the salt of the earth. God uses our gifts and talents for the great work of the ministry. From men whose occupation was to catch fish, Simon and Andrew were called to become fishers of men (vv. 16 – 17).

As we answer the call of God to closer fellowship with Christ, and surrender our gifts and talents for God’s use, God will make us beneficial to His kingdom in Jesus name.

Pray: Thank you Father for giving me a higher calling. I pray your grace continues to empower me to be fruitful in the ministry in Jesus name.
