Third Sunday after Epiphany

Look at how Jesus frames his call to these fishermen: “I will make you fish for people” (Mark 1:17). Jesus is telling them he can take who they are and what they do and use it for God’s kingdom. It might sound like the disciples dropped their nets and left their fishing vocation completely; but throughout the gospel story we hear about Jesus and the disciples getting into boats. Who else but fishermen would have boats? How else did they continue to support their ministry and feed their families? Fishermen fish, but now the disciples do it for a higher purpose.
