Mark 1:15-20New Living Translation (NLT)
15 “The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”
The First Disciples
16 One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. 17 Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 18 And they left their nets at once and followed him.
19 A little farther up the shore Jesus saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat repairing their nets. 20 He called them at once, and they also followed him, leaving their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired men.
Dear Father, The Kingdom is near. I am to repent of my sins. I believe in the Good News. I hear Jesus who calls me. I will follow the Lord. Thank you for your call. Thank you for your peace. Thank you for your joy. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
