A Sermon Echo from Sunday, January 25, 2015

(A “Sermon Echo” is a short reminder or elaboration of something I preached about on a previous Sunday.)

As Jesus BEGAN his earthly ministry he recruited his first disciples by saying, “Come, follow me and I will send you out to fish for people.” (Mark 1:17, NIV). Jesus ENDED his earthly ministry by keeping his recruiting promise: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:18-19, NIV)

I don’t think much has changed. If we claim to be followers of Jesus we must be fishing for people (that is, going and making disciple).
