Power and obedience

Mark 1
9 One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River.10 As Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Holy Spirit descending on him like a dove.11 And a voice from heaven said, "You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy."
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.

Mark 2

Jesus Calls Levi (Matthew)
13 Then Jesus went out to the lakeshore again and taught the crowds that were coming to him.14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at his tax collector's booth. "Follow me and be my disciple," Jesus said to him. So Levi got up and followed him.
  15 Later, Levi invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus' followers.)16 But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, "Why does he eat with such scum?"
  17 When Jesus heard this, he told them, "Healthy people don't need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners."

Before Jesus began His ministry He was baptised and the Holy Spirit descended on Him. We need the Holy Spirit to be our guide and voice. He is send by God to be our help. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide, let Him open your heart, eyes and ears for the will of God.

When Jesus called His disciples they followed. They did not wait to make sure and then first had to take care of other stuff, they followed Him.

Put down the sorrows, problems and worries of this world. They are robbing you from the blessing of Jesus. Open your heart and follow Jesus. Let the Holy Spirit fill your body and give you strength so that we can make a change.

Let us plant the seed and watch the Holy Spirit transform people’s lives.

Come Lord Jesus come, come and change my life and fill me with the Holy Spirit.

To God be all the glory.
