January 24, 2021 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jonah 3:1-5,10 • 1 Corinthians 7:29-31 • Mark 1:14-20
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” —Mark 1:17
This is a little confusing, isn’t it? The men that Jesus called to follow him were fishers of fish. What did he mean when he said he would make them fishers of men? Jesus hoped that these men he chose would set such a beautiful example of their faith in God that it would attract other people to also want to follow Jesus. This is something that we are all called to do. If we love Jesus and try to live our lives reflecting his light, then we too will become “fishers of men.”
Pray together: Lord, help us to love you so much that all we do, say, think, and feel will radiate the love we have for you. Please allow that light to touch those we meet each day, so that they too will want to follow you.
Discuss this question: What is one thing Jesus’ disciples did then that we can still do today to help people know and follow Jesus?
