AND YOU SHALL BE MY DISCIPLES – Lesson #2                                               

        • Follow Me

“And he said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men”              (Matthew 4:19)


“Follow Me”, is an imperative statement, a command (not a request). It conveys a sense of urgency, as saying “Now!”. Finally, the idea is to draw near, as looking over Jesus’ shoulder, watching, learning, preparing to imitate Him. You are to be seen with Him and identified as having been with Him.

A disciple of Jesus – A Christian – is identified as having been with Jesus.

He called Peter and Andrew and said, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”  Peter and Andrew understood this was an invitation to a close, personal and lasting relationship.   This was not a casual encounter.  This is the Call of God for all to follow Him, and a being yoked with Him is the perfect illustration to describe this new relationship with Jesus.


Being yoked with Jesus is freedom from what binds you, what ails you, what plagues you.  Know that Jesus is gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.  His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  His yoke is a yoke of freedom!

When people see you, are they amazed, and recognize you as having been with Jesus?

Now, it is your turn:

One thought on ““FOLLOW ME”

  1. Pastor Alistair Begg, of Parkside Church, spoke on Sunday from Acts 4:28, 29: “. . .to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness. . .”

    Holy Spirit is speaking in many ways to many Believers in these days; the overall message is similar, is it not?

    L-RD Bless, Keep, Shine. . .
