This month we’ve GONE FISHIN’ to learn about Jesus and how He taught the disciples to be fishers of men. They learned to be fishers of men by following Jesus, and we can follow Jesus, too!
In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells Andrew, Peter, John, and James to follow Him and they do.
Jesus wants everyone to follow Him. He went to Andrew and Peter and said, ‘Follow me.’ They dropped their fishing nets and followed Jesus! So did John and James! Jesus wants us to follow Him, too!
