A very long time ago, Jesus walked down by the Sea of Galilee. He needed some friends who can help him to spread the message of God to the world. As he walked down nearby the sea, he saw two fishermen put their nets in the water to catch fish.
Simon and Andrew was the name of both and they both brothers. Jesus called out to them and they came to the shore. Politely Jesus said, “Follow me! And I will make you special fishermen of the people!”
Moreover, he said, follow the path of god and god will make your life easy and peaceful. The two men left their nets at once and joined him. They had understood that Jesus was the promised Savior.

As he went along, Jesus came across another two brothers named James and John. They were sitting in a fishing boat. They are both also fishermen who catch fish for a living.
Somehow, their fishing net was damaged and they were repairing the fishing nets. Besides, their father whose name was Zebedee also trying to help their sons.
When Jesus called out their names, they left their nets and their father and joined Jesus. Jesus said the same words as he said to Simon and Andrew. They were both convinced by Jesus’s faith as they knew that Jesus was sent by God.
Jesus chose these people because they were loyal to God and not because they were talented or gifted. Jesus knew that these people are good by the soul and also by the inner minds. Later, he gave them new names.
Simon was named Peter which meant Rock. Andrew was named as Apostle which meant a great teacher. Furthermore, John and James were called ‘Sons of thunder because they were fiery young men in place of catching fish.
These good people would get many others to join the Kingdom of God. They joined many who were happily ready to follow the path of god. Jesus chosen people stay close to him. They learned from him and helped him as he went around the worked teaching and healing people.
