From the set of Come Follow Me from WELS Streams on Vimeo.
A gentle voice called, "Come follow me" and a man named Peter was drawn to respond.
Peter struggled in his efforts to follow Jesus. Finally, he learned to rely only on the power and promises made certain by Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead.
Jesus still invites you, “Come follow me.” Like Peter you can learn why that invitation is so important and wonderful!
Come Follow Me
is a movie that depicts what it means to be a disciple, a follower of Jesus. The movie recounts the experience of the Apostle Peter—his misunderstanding, denial, doubts, and fears. The answer for Peter is Jesus who assures his disciple of forgiveness through his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. The way for Peter to be a follower of Jesus is found in the power and promises of Jesus’ word. In the same way as it is for us. The movie dramatizes Peter’s progression from the denier before the crucifixion to the preacher of repentance and salvation at Pentecost. Recalling Jesus’ invitation to Peter and others to follow him and become fishers of men, the film is entitled Come Follow Me.
