Daily Word Of God

Matthew 4:18-22

As Jesus was walking by the Lake of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew; they were making a cast into the lake with their net, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you fishers of people.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him.

Going on from there he saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in their boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. And at once, leaving the boat and their father, they followed him.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Peter, Andrew, James and John were all hard working fishermen when Jesus called them to follow Him.


  • Our daily place at work or efforts in doing mundane work can precisely be the opportunities and occasions where we meet Jesus and hear His challenges.


  • Ask the Lord for the faith to sense His Spirit’s promptings as we go about our daily work. Be courageous and respond to His call to live according to His Father’s ways.
