Sharing Life

“Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” - Matthew 4:19

You and I are called upon to follow the Lord Jesus in the same way that Peter, Andrew and His brothers were. He set us an example as a great soul winner that we need to emulate. To fish for people is a requirement of the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

You need to ask yourself: “Am I really following the Lord Jesus? Am I winning souls for Jesus Christ?

The following quote is attributed to the famous singer Bob Dylan when he was asked about his relationship with the Lord: “Jesus tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Bob, why are you resisting me?’ I said, ‘I'm not resisting you!’ He said, ‘You gonna follow me? I said, ‘I've never thought about that before!’ He said, ‘When you're not following me, you're resisting me.’”

Being called means you are no longer an idle bystander. Jesus said He came to seek and to save that which was lost and this mission has a priority claim in our lives today.

As a follower of the Lord Jesus we have a holy duty to witness for Him and by His help win someone to Him today.

 Dear Lord, as Your child make me a fisher of men. I give myself to You today in obedience to Your call to follow You and win others for the kingdom.
