During Jesus' life on earth He called twelve special men. When He said, "Come follow Me," they did so there and then.
Invited first to join the group, Simon Peter came. Peter's brother followed too. Andrew was his name.
Several more were called by Jesus near the Galilean Lake. James and John gave up their nets, just for Jesus' sake.
Crowds that followed Jesus knew Phillip and Thomas too. But Thomas had doubts about Jesus (more than just a few).
In the group was Matthew, who wrote of Jesus' life. His book tells many great stories - the love, teachings, and strife.
Pleased to be a disciple, James joined the throng. Thaddaeus and Simon also came along.
Later the one called Judas would betray his master's name. Bartholomew (called Nathanael) was another one who came.
Each of the disciples went out in the world to preach, to tell the message of Jesus to every soul they could reach.
Since we're saved by Jesus, we must follow too; so listen to Jesus calling - calling me and you.
