Week 9: Transformational Challenge

According to Matthew’s account, when Jesus first met Peter (then Simon) and his brother Andrew, he simply said:

“Come, follow me and I will show you how to fish for people!” (Matthew 4:19)

Peter and Andrew were fisherman and this invitation to “fish” for men would be one that would speak to them personally.

The Challenge:

Take a deep breath, close your eyes and ask the Spirit to give you eyes to see and ears to hear. Imagine yourself doing something you absolutely love doing or something that is familiar to you.

Now…ask Jesus to join you.

The question: Ask Jesus to show you something special between the two of you.

Hint: Don’t overcomplicate this or think you are looking for deeper identity or purpose… he may just want to show you a beautiful sunset, a flower or picture he loves and knows you will love too
