THEY LEFT THEIR NETS AND FOLLOWED HIM
 
Our heavenly Father wants others to see the light of Christ Jesus in us in the way we live, speak, and witness the joy of a Gospel life!
 
In today’s Gospel, Jesus catches His first catchers of people, Peter and Andrew, as they are casting their nets for literal fish. Later we hear about James and John. Andrew was the first, according to John’s Gospel, to see Jesus, and Andrew brought his brother to meet Jesus. Then Jesus turns around and makes Andrew’s brother head of the apostles. The reading from Paul’s letter to the Romans sheds some light on the calling of those who are to be the first apostles. Paul tells us that there are two requirements for being on God’s team: to believe with the heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and to proclaim with our mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus Christ speaks the same message to us today. We will “catch people” for the kingdom of God if we allow the light of Christ to shine through us. Our heavenly Father wants others to see the light of Christ Jesus in us in the way we live, speak, and witness the joy of a Gospel life! In the responsorial psalm we acclaim: Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. Do you know that His law is perfect and it refreshes you and brings you wisdom?
