Faith To See, Strength To Stand Firm

Passage: Matthew 4:18-20 (NRSV)

SCRIPTURE READING

“As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.”
Matthew 4:18-20 (NRSV)

INTRODUCTION TO THE LESSON

Endowed with twelve spiritual abilities or capabilities, symbolized by the Twelve Disciples of Jesus, we are empowered to live as a spiritual being actualizing the God potential within. Jesus’ disciple, Peter represents FAITH and Andrew, his brother, represents STRENGTH. They are both called by Jesus into ministry (service) one after the other. Faith and Strength, in you, must work together for they are kin.

MAJOR POINTS OF THE LESSON

  1. The twelve centers within you must be called into service to assist you in the unfolding of your Christ nature and in fulfillment of your spiritual purpose.
  2. Peter represents faith – our ability to perceive spiritually, what may not yet appear physically.
  3. Andrew represents strength – our ability to be steadfast and immoveable in all matters perceived by Faith and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
