My Daily Devotional

Are You A Fisher Of Men

“Come follow me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Matthew 4:19

As I was growing up I spent many wonderful days with my grandfather on the banks of the Cumberland River fishing. These were some of the most peaceful times of my life, just being with my grandfather as our minds were not on our difficulties and struggles, but rather on just talking and spending time together. We both loved to fish, and whether we caught anything or not really didn’t matter to us. The Bible tells us that several of the Disciples were fishermen, and I can imagine they also experienced the peace and contentment that fishing can bring. The Bible also tells us that we are all called to be fishermen, however instead of catching fish we are to catch the souls of the lost and unsaved. We are to cast the Gospel in open waters and sit back and hope for a bite, and if we are lucky we can hook someone. Once we catch them, and tell them about Jesus, the rest is up to God. The Bible tells us one more thing that we are to do after we catch them, and that is to make them disciples. Making them disciples is taking them with us as we walk together with Christ, and growing together in fellowship, relationship, love, hope, faith and trust with the Holy Spirit leading us. Being fishers of men is something we are all called to do, and we can do it in all walks of our lives, in our jobs, in our schools, in our neighborhoods, everywhere we go we have an opportunity to lead someone to Christ. This is why it is so important for people to know that you are different, than the world, as your light needs to shine brightly for others to see. God’s great commission is for you to go and tell others the Gospel, to share the good news. Fishing can be fun and oh so rewarding, when you lead someone to know Jesus.
