UNDER CONSTRUCTION NEW CHANGES

“I believe God is re-positioning our school and leading us to do greater things for His Kingdom.  In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus was gathering the disciples. "As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers; Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,' Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.' At once they left their nets and followed him. Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him" (Matthew 4:18-22).

These men were already qualified fishermen, but Jesus had bigger plans for them. He said, "Come, follow me…and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). Jesus knew that didn’t know how to do this.  He just wanted them to respond. His request was to leave their ordinary lives to work for His Kingdom.  He honored their willingness to drop everything for Him. He asked these successful leaders to become His followers. I believe we are following Jesus and responding to His voice.

I’m very excited that God is calling us “outside our boats” because that’s where our faith will be challenged and proved. In this life, there will always be waves, storms and other things that will come our way. But if we keep our eyes fixed on Him the Author and Finisher of our Faith we will follow Him all the way Home.”
