WOMEN SHARING SCRIPTURE WITH WOMEN

by

On Thursday we had our women’s Bible study.  We shared together on the readings for this Sunday, January 23rd and we spent considerable time reflecting on the reading from Matthew 4:18-22 “The first four disciples are called.”  It struck us that just as Jesus called Peter and Andrew when they were busy doing the ordinary things of life – so Jesus calls us in those very ordinary moments too.  This is true for all of us isn’t it?  Just think – when we stop to say hello to a neighbour or pause for a cup of tea with a friend – when we’re washing the pots or busy at work – wherever we are – Jesus is there with us, calling us “Follow me”.  How good it is to think that by living our lives as fully as we can on a day to day basis we are being faithful to our call and doing our part for the reign of God.
