Catching Any Fish?
For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.”Luke 5:9-10
A few weeks ago in church our pastor was talking about going fishing for men. Just as the familiar verse above indicates we need to go fishing for souls. Not an in your face type of fishing but by being available to share the reason of hope in you.
Once you accept Christ you need to step up to the plate, or get in the boat, in this case and do your part for the kingdom of God. God uses us to spread His word and draw men and women to Him. Your smile, your kindness, your willingness to go beyond the call to help.
Go get your tackle box ready and be prepared when you may be asked. Don't ever be ashamed or afraid to share the Gospel with those you may come in contact with.
PRAYER: The world around us is hurting, confused, scared and in many cases hopeless. Use me Lord to plant seeds of love and hope and share Jesus with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
