And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."

After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them,
and they follow him because they know his voice...
"My sheep listen to my voice;
I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish."
John 10:4, 27-28
"If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me;
and where I am, there shall My servant also be;
if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him."
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you,
leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
“He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth.”
...“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross,
so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;
“by His wounds you have been healed.”
For “you were like sheep going astray,”
but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
