3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reading I: Jonah 3:1-5,10 II: 1 Cor 7:29-31
Mark 1:14-20

14 After John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee and began preaching the Good News of God.
15 He said, "This is the time of fulfillment; the kingdom of God is at hand. Change your ways and believe the Good News".
16 As Jesus was walking along the shore of Lake Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net in the lake, for they were fishermen.
17 And Jesus said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men".
18 At once, they left their nets and followed him.
19 Jesus went a little farther on and saw James and John, the sons of Zebedee; they were in their boat mending their nets.
20 Immediately, Jesus called them and they followed him, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men.

One Main Point

A new world (the Kingdom of God) has arrived. That new world comes in the person of Jesus. We are asked to respond by changing our way of life, and to follow Him.

  1. To receive God's Kingdom requires a change in my outlook, my way of life. How is my way of life different from God's teachings?
  2. To follow Jesus means to take nothing with me except myself. Looking at my past and present way of life, what are the things I have difficulty letting go of?
