Jesus Calls His First Disciples
16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets.
20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Thought for the week
By Gladys Chingoka
Time to turn to the Lord.
The people of Nineveh received the message that in 40 days the whole of Nineveh was to be destroyed. Nineveh was the capital city of Assyria, where a lot of sin occurred. Assyria was the most powerful empire in those days; it was also ruthlessly violent toward its conquered enemies. As the King of Assyria was a powerful man, of strong character and not very easily convinced with any information, it was very difficult for anyone preaching the gospel to go to that town. However, on this occasion Jonah was assigned to go and, despite having had previously declined, he was finally directed into the city by the power of God. To his amazement the King not only listened to him, but also stepped down from his throne and took off his royal robes.
The lesson here is that, as messengers of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have power to execute tasks in our lives as we are the mouthpiece of God who is omnipotent.
The sovereignty of God breaks every other power, as it is written in Philippians 2 v 10 -11 that “at the name Jesus every knee will bow down and every tongue will confess that Jesus is the king above all other kings”.
Friends, during these times of trial, let us turn to God, for every disease, every strong man and every powerful wave shall obey the word of the Lord. We are now required as Christians to stand in the gap for the nation. Jesus said when we go into the battle through prayer we come out victorious, and as we are fighting the coronavirus I share the view that it is time to fast and pray for the nation to be saved.
The reason why Jonah did not want to go to Nineveh was because the Assyrians were known for killing and very arrogant. Today Coronavirus has been arrogant and is pursuing our peace, our freedom and our happiness. I now look at it as an Assyrian of that time, so we are needed as Christians to trust in God.
The promises of God are; I will be with you, I will go before you, and I shall be the provider in your lives. Today I choose to pray with you this prayer:
“O God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Israel we today come into your presence seeking your uncommon favour during these times of trial. We turn to you our faithful father in heaven with hope that you hear our cry and bring Coronavirus’s knees to bow down before You the creator of universe. Our all-knowing God, send forth in Your Word a powerful wave, send strong men to bear against this viral disease. Breath a fresh wind in our universe that all things may become fresh again. Amen”.
