30th November 2019 Saturday 34th Week of Ordinary Time - St. Andrew
Romans 10:9-18, Matthew 4:18-22
“Leaving our boats and nets for Jesus’ sake”
In today’s Gospel, Jesus walked past Simon, Andrew, James and John. All of them were busy with their nets and boats as they were professional fishermen. In the middle of what they were doing the best, Jesus went to them and said, “Follow me.” Do we dare to let Jesus be above all our personal agendas, comforts, ambitions and plans? Do we have the courage to follow Him with joyful trust?
Andrew and the rest left everything and chose to follow Jesus. For these fishermen, Jesus was worthy for them. What about us? What is our response?
Question for reflection:
1) Jesus says, “Follow me”. What is my response to Him?
