Welcome to The Cyber Church of Eufaula, Oklahoma Pastor, James West  -|- This Sermon Published August, 1997 


(This is not a sermon, but notes of one preached in 1988 at The Lake of the Ozarks, missouri.) Along Came Jesus!

Matthew 4:18-20   And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And He saith unto them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." And they straightway left their nets and followed Him.

Peter and Andrew were ordinary fishermen. It was their business. The way they made their living. They looked for the Messiah like all Jews at that time, but they weren't expecting Him to come walking Along!
