August 25: Are You A Disciple?
What did Jesus ask his disciples to do when he called them as his disciples? Our church mission is to make disciples, but we need to know what a disciple is, according to Jesus, in order to be one and to make them. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Marc asks us all to answer – are you a disciple?
Scripture Reading: Mark 1:16-20 (ESV)
Jesus Calls the First Disciples
16 Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”[a] 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20 And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him.
