Today's scripture is based on Mark 1:14-20. 

In this scripture, we hear about the apostles being chosen to tell everyone the Good News of God's Love. 

Think about the following questions:

  1. What do you think Jesus thought when he saw Andrew and Simon fishing?
  2. Did they have a task to fulfil or were they just friends?
  3. What do you think Andrew, Simon, James or John felt when Jesus called them?
  4. What was their response?
  5. What would your response be if you were one of them?
  6. How do you think it changed their lives?
  7. Do you think that Jesus still calls people to help and how?

Activity

Please choose from one of the following activities.

1. Think about how Andrew and Simon felt when Jesus was calling them. How did they respond? What did they say? Using the template below, fill in the speech bubbles to show what Andrew and Simon said.  If you are not able to print, draw your own picture on a piece of paper and write how Andrew and Simon responded. 

2. Jesus said, “Come and follow me. I will make you fishers of people.” What did Jesus mean when He said this? Using the template below, write a couple of sentences to explain what Jesus meant. If you are not able to print, you can draw your own picture of Jesus calling the apostles to do God's work. Then under your picture you can describe what Jesus said. 

We hope you had a good day of home learning.
