9/13/15 – 9/27/15
What does it mean … to be a follower of Jesus … to be fishers of men … to be on God’s hook? Nowadays, we use the phrase ‘on the hook’ to mean that we are in a tight spot. In our scripture passages for the next three weeks, Jesus’ conversations with the disciples put them on the spot and leave them squirming. The call to discipleship is a challenging one. It’s a call to take up our cross, to follow Christ, to serve the least, and to not cause others to stumble.
