Bible Leads: Mark 1:14-20

TEXT

Mark 1:14-20

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.” As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.

REFLECTION QUESTIONS

  2. What does it mean that an all-powerful God would call us to participate in God’s work?
  3. In what ways do all callings from God require us to “drop our nets and follow”?
  4. What might God’s calling be for Zebedee in the above scenario?
