Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
Tonight we were talking to good friend of ours in the States who loves to fish. Fishing is one of his favorite activities and he goes quite frequently. As we were talking, he happened to mentioned some disappointment about a friend canceling a fishing trip they were to enjoy today. I replied, “Bro, maybe the Lord wants you to go fishing for men today!”
He quickly answered that he’s much better at fishing for fish than he is at fishing for men. “At least the fish bite every now and then.” he said.
“Well,” I asked, “But how much practice have you really had in fishing for men?”
So many of us make excuses, reasoning that we’re just not good enough at sharing the gospel to do it regularly. But really -- how often do we practice? We can’t get good at something with out putting in the practice!
Let’s commit to sharing the Gospel on a regular basis. Yes, it can be really hard. But let's put our fears aside and determine to share God's love and truth! There’s so much work to be done!!
