Verse 4: ​Will you love the “you” you hide if I but
call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never
be the same?
Will you use the faith you've found to
reshape the world around?
Through my sight and touch and sound in
you and you in me?

      O God, you are our light and our salvation. Living in your presence, we have nothing to fear. Open our hearts to your Word this day. As we hear the story of the call of the first disciples, make us ready to follow Jesus on whatever path he leads us. Cast aside our fears and doubts and teach us to trust wholly in you. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
