Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, [Jesus] saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
Today, we recall the Magi following the star to see the new born King Jesus and how Jesus found and called Peter, Andrew, James, and John to be His disciples. “Fishers of men,” He said. He called them to follow Him as He was passing by them on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. We also remember how Jesus found a man named Saul, an infamous enemy of Christ and His Christians. His call wasn’t as “peaceful” as with the others but with a blinding flash from heaven. We also hear of God’s call to Jonah in the Old Testament and how, after trying to run away, he was given a second chance. Before he became a “fisher of men,” he literally became fish bait! God calls us both to salvation for ourselves and to be fellow anglers speaking God’s grace to others.
