Finding and Following the Lamb of God

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." (John 1:43)

We seek Jesus because Jesus has been seeking us. When we seek Jesus, we will find Christ; when we don’t seek Jesus he will find us and he will give us a new name. We follow Jesus because Jesus has found us. Jesus has authority to call anyone he wants to follow him, regards of who they are or who they are not, because he has the sovereign authority of God to determine our destiny. Jesus is our ladder to God!

Fishers of Men - Rhonda Vincent

"Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men."
Mark 1:17

Rise and follow me
I'll make you worthy
Rise and follow me
I'll make you fishers of men.
Rise and follow me
I'll make you worthy
Rise and follow me
I'll make you fishers of men.

Peter, John, and James
Could never be the same
After they heard him say
I'll make you fishers of men.

Cast your nets aside
and join the battle tide
He will be your guide
To make you fishers of men.

Jesus bore the cross
To gather in the lost
Oh what a might cost
To set us free from sin.

The Powerful Faith of Witness

“I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God." (John 1:34)

Jesus is the promised hope of God, the preeminent power of God, and the presence of one true God! We “bear witness” to that message when we boldly live out our “faith” in God before the world we live in. God has given us “a voice” to use to point people to Jesus!

Creation Calls: Are You listening? - Brian Doerksen

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Psalms 19:1-5

The Fullness of God in Jesus Christ

And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. (John 1:16)

Jesus is the Sovereign God of the Universe, the Word of God, the Light and Life of God; the Sovereign Savior of the World who empowers spiritually powerless sinners to believe and fully receive him as their Lord and Savior; the Sovereign Grace of our Salvation who is full of grace and truth – and from his fullness, we have all received grace upon grace!
