Matthew 4:12-25

In today's Gospel reading Jesus begins His public ministry.  He moves from His hometown Nazareth to the Gentile town of Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus walks along the shore and calls out to four fishermen as they are tending their nets and tells them to Follow Him and He will make them fishers of people. 

Jesus' message was to repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. The kingdom of Heaven is anywhere Jesus is.  Jesus brought the Kingdom of God to earth but not in its fullness.  It is a here now but still coming kind of a deal. Jesus calls us to follow Him by sharing God’s Kingdom with those around us who don’t yet know Him.
