Jesus sought me

Feb 18, 2024    Rev. Sarah Clark

Jesus doesn’t seek out trained rabbis and priests to be his disciples; instead he calls a few Galilean fishermen to follow him and join his ministry. In this story, Jesus tells Simon Peter to drop his nets one more time, even though they’ve been fishing all night long and have caught nothing. To their surprise, they haul in nets bursting with fish. In response to this abundant miracle, Peter says, “Go away from me, Lord!” And yet, Peter and his partners drop their nets and follow Jesus. What is the beginning of your faith story? When has God sought you out? Have you ever felt like your calling was pursuing – or chasing – you? Did you resist? Did you follow?
