Crazy visionary Jesus

Jesus said to them, `Come after me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” Mark 1:17 (TMB)

It may have sounded like crazy talk to a couple of fishermen but Peter and Andrew were in. Their vision for their lives was limited to what they could imagine: decent careers, fulfilling family life, and being good little law-abiding Jews. Jesus presented them with a bigger, more radical vision for who they were and what they would do. They spent the rest of their lives being the fishermen He envisioned.

Lord, forget my vision, make me become whatever You envision for me.
