Jesus Speaks | An Irresistible Invitation | Mark 1:14-20

It is the most normal of days, in the most normal of scenes, as two sets of brothers are going about their everyday lives normally, with no thought of anything different nor any desire to change it. Yet, into their normal, God interrupts with the most normal of invitations, yet with the most profound eternal implications. Two words are spoken: “Follow me”, and four lives are changes that would eventually turn their world and the entire world upside down.

How would you respond? Or perhaps the better question is, how could you not respond to such an invitation for Jesus? Join us as we consider the call of four brothers who would leave everything to follow Jesus and, in time, take on his mission and mandate to change the world. Listen in as Andrew, our Ministers, challenges us to consider how we, as individual followers of Jesus, are living out the call to Go and model the Kingdom way as a people who go into the world around us and incarnate the good news of the Gospel in word and deed. And, consider with us what it means for each of our churches to understand both the priority of this kingdom work in our lives and living and what it means to be a church that goes with God into the communities he has called us to love and serve. Jesus says to follow him, and with the Power of the Holy Spirit in us - to him, we say: “Where you go, I will go.”
