My Daily Devotional


Are You A Fisher Of Men

“Come, follow me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Mark 1:17

During my teen aged years I spent most of my summers fishing with my grandfather. We would spend most of our waking hours either catching bait or fishing in the nearby river or lakes. We would catch all kinds of fish and knew where to go, and what kind of bait to use to catch several different species of fish. These were some of the best memories I have of my years with my grandfather. Since I have now given my heart to Jesus and am following his will for my life I find comfort in the fact of using the above scripture in my own life. Jesus told us that he would make us fishers of me, if we will follow him. I know that it took me and my grandfather most of the day to get ready and walk or drive for an hour or so to the river or lake to go fishing. The fish certainly did not come to us. I have visited many churches during this last thirty years in my ministry and have found that many of our churches are waiting for the fish or people to come to them. Many are not coming, as the church pews are never full. We must go to them. The church must go out into the communities and the world and go to the people. This is what we as Christians are to do according to God’s commands. Jesus’ story of the Good Samaritan who found the beaten man dying beside the road shows us that the Good Samaritan went to where the man was. We are not going to catch many fish if we stay in our churches. We have to go where they are. How we reach people we do not know requires effort on our part but Jesus expects it from us. Every Christian should be aware of God’s Great Commission and not be just a Sunday morning Christian, but in every aspect of our life be looking for the people around us who do not know Our Lord and Savior and tell them what God can do in their life. We should all be fishers of men and spread the gospel of Christ to all the world. This is our task as Christians. I would encourage each of you reading this devotional today, to take your church and the message of Jesus’s salvation outside the walls of your church to all the world, in your workplaces, your schools, your neighborhoods, every where you go and tell others about Jesus. Be a Fisher of Men to all the world.
