What is a Disciple? “I will make you”

Matthew 4:18-22

What was it about Jesus that so intrigued these common fishermen that they would leave their homes and livelihood to follow him? Perhaps it was Jesus’ statement, “I will make you.” Eventually, we all come to the end of our own abilities and realize lasting change is not possible without divine intervention. When Jesus spoke this phrase, he took the pressure off of us and announced his power to transform us.
