And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” Mark 1:17
Jesus saw Peter (Simon) and his brother Andrew, Professional Fisherman, and asked them to follow him and make disciples of all the nations. Think about it this was their careers, this was how they put food on the table, but they walked away from it all to serve our Lord Jesus Christ
How many of us do we put our careers ahead of our God? We are too worried about making the next deadline or getting the next raise. But what importance does it have in eternity? Did you try to make disciples during your time?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for working, as The Bible tells us “those who don’t work, don’t eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10) God doesn’t reward laziness, but we need to keep our focus on our mission. Use your time wisely, because our life is but a vapor in the wind, a flower quickly fading
How do fishermen catch fish? They go after them, don’t expect to make disciples by remaining silent. Just as a fisherman, devote yourself to your craft, study the scriptures and become trained and educated in the Word of God.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19
Jesus gave us our marching orders, make disciples, become fishers of men (people). Whatever you do for a career, make Jesus your focus, use your platform to spread the gospel to all the nations in Jesus Name Amen!
