Dear congregation,

It’s a joy to gather together in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I want to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you. Today, we come together to dive into the Word of God and explore the path of Christian discipleship and spiritual growth.

Let us bow our heads in prayer as we open our hearts to God’s presence.

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We come before you with grateful hearts,
thankful for the opportunity to gather as a community of believers.
As we delve into your Word today,
may your Holy Spirit guide our hearts and minds,
illuminating the path of discipleship and growth.
We ask for your wisdom and understanding to fill this place,
that we may be transformed by your truth. In the name of Jesus, we pray.

Introduction to Scripture

Today, we turn our attention to the Gospel of Mark, chapter 1, verses 14 to 20. In this passage, we witness a pivotal moment in the ministry of Jesus. It’s a time when Jesus begins to proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God and calls his first disciples.

NIV Bible Verse: Mark 1:14-20 Fishers of Men

Mark 1:14-20 (NIV)

14 After John (The Baptist) was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
15 ‘The time has come,’ he said. ‘The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!’
16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17 ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’
18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets.
20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

In these verses, we see Jesus’ call to discipleship. He invites Simon, Andrew, James, and John to leave behind their nets and follow him. It’s a powerful reminder that discipleship often requires us to leave behind our old ways and follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
