And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Matthew 4:19
Imagine Jesus shows up at your home or work, after you have exhaustively worked on an issue all day you decided to give up. Here comes a man, looks almost homeless, says do it this way. His way seemed so simple its not logical. Out of desperation you follow his lead, and your life was never the same again.
This is what happened to Simon (Peter) and Andrew. Professional fisherman who were giving up for the day, when Jesus walked in told them there is a better way. Now obviously Jesus used fishing to demonstrate the principle, our ways are not the best ways. Follow Jesus because he knows the way.
(John 14:6) “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Why follow Jesus? Because his is the way, the only way to Heaven, the only way to redemption, the only way to God. False religions and ideologies will tell you there are multiple ways to Heaven, I ask show me there proof?
I can show you the proof of Jesus Christ, he rose from dead after 3 days , where are there false prophets?
(Isaiah 55:9) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Are you following Jesus? Or do you continue to believe you know everything? See we become our biggest enemy, our ego, our pride. We always think we know what’s best for our life and how do go about it, but we don’t . Lean not on your own understanding and follow Jesus.
(Matthew 28:19) “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”
Jesus is the truth, and he taught us the truth thru the gospel. Now Jesus is commanding you go make disciples throughout the world, become a “ Fishers of Men” Let the world hear the truth, the light, and the only way to God in Jesus Name Amen
