“Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.  And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of people.”

Jesus comes and calls each one of us.  He will make of us what He will make of us.  Remember the words of St. Paul which told us that there are many parts of the body.  Listen to the Lord and humbly walk with Him wherever He leads You.  Be guided in His goodness and mercy.  Repent when You get off the path, get back on the narrow way and see that Jesus is the One who is making of You what He has always intended.

Lord, I see that a large part of the problem is that I want to be the one in the driver’s seat.  You have come calling me to follow You.  Help me to hear and obey.  As You called Simon and Andrew, so You call me.  Andrew and Simon were fishermen, and You changed their focus to gathering for the kingdom those whom You knew and called through them.  Help me to learn my part according to Your will.

Lord, You have already given me the desire to do my part in Your kingdom.  Lead me in Your goodness to see what You would have me do today and then help me to do what You have given me to do.  Through the water of my baptism, You have given me the commission to become a disciple and learn all that You will teach me.  Guide me to become the person You are making me to be.  Amen.
