Reflection on today’s Gospel: Matthew 4: v 12 – 23 The calling of the disciples presents us with a wonderful example; Jesus called his disciples and they dropped everything and followed him immediately, leaving behind all they knew. They did this both literally and figuratively… They left their previous life behind with its attachments, and they – in a sense – forgot themselves and their own plans and ambitions to follow a new path of Christ's vision. If we, too, want to follow Jesus, everything we do, everything we say, must be for the furtherance of Christ's gospel, to serve the establishment of God's Kingdom and never merely our own needs and ambitions
