Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
Jesus asks us to rearrange all of our own priorities and become so in love with him. When we get a taste of his unfailing love and glory, we will be so determined to share His love with everyone. Once you taste and see that He is good there is no going back.
If we have the secret to happiness, blessings, health & wealth then why would we want to keep it a secret? Wouldn't you want to tell everyone how they could have it too?
That's what Jesus was talking about when he told Peter and Andrew that He would make them fishers of men. We can cast out our nets all by ourselves all we want but when you get divine direction and the help of the Holy Spirit, that is when our nets will be overflowing.
We can't force anyone to accept Jesus, only when they feel the Holy Spirit tugging on their hearts can they genuinely call out for Gods help and be saved.
So, when is the last time you were so on fire for God that you just had to share His love? When is the last time you told someone something that God did for you?
Most importantly, when is the last time you invited someone to church?
It's so easy to just focus on ourselves and what God is doing for us. What blessing we are believing for and what prayer will be answered.
Our walk with God isn't supposed to always be about us. It's about sharing.
God gives us blessings, miracles, answered prayers all for His glory! We can use our testimonies of great times and bad times to reach the lost. Most the time when we have a relatable story is when we are the best fisher of men!
I encourage you to share God's love more so you can be a FISHER OF MEN just like Jesus wants us to be!
