Jesus calling His disciples

Today’s Gospel from the Mass (Mark 1:14-20) reveals something amazing about Jesus Christ:

[14] Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God,  [15] and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel.”   [16]  And passing along by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen.  [17] And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men.”   [18] And immediately they left their nets and followed him.  [19] And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zeb’edee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. [20] And immediately he called them; and they left their father Zeb’edee in the boat with the hired servants, and followed him.

What’s amazing?  This:

The power and charisma of our Lord Jesus Christ must have been awesome (i.e. “divinely reverential”).

Jesus Christ is the same today:  are we prepared to drop everything and follow Jesus?
