Matthew 4: 19 “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”  

    There are six ‘follow me’ verses in Matthew – in this brief message the first (Matthew 4: 18 – 22) will be discussed.  When Jesus calls how do we respond?  Do we listen?  Do we act?  Or do we go for the safety of empty religion?
Follow Me part 1
     This short podcast:  Follow Me part 1  – speaks to these issues . . .
     When you answer His call your life changes around.  Priorities shift and concern for self recedes.  His ministry takes us to hurt and suffering people.  People who are in need of love, patience, and support.  Through His ministry we begin to accept a kinship with those in need – our needs and frailties become apparent to us.  It’s hard to be self-righteous when you are looking into His mirror.  It’s hard to be self-righeous when you struggle to follow Jesus every day.
