"Come, follow me, Jesus said." Mark 1:17
A hymn we frequently sing, for an Invitational during worship, is entitled "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus." These words sound familiar to us. Jesus called several of His disciples by saying "follow Me." In the related passage from Mark, Jesus finds Simon and Andrew fishing at the lake. The two were hard at work at their profession. They immediately answered Jesus' call and followed Him. Jesus calls us the same way today. We hear Him calling us to follow Him and become a disciple. The word "disciple" means learner or student. When we follow Jesus, we become His students. We don't instantly have all the answers, but we are now following the One Who does.
Will you decide to follow Jesus?
