"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people" (Matthew 4:19).
That's what Jesus said when he called His disciples to follow Him and some of them literally dropped their nets and followed Him. What do you think it meant when Jesus asked them to drop what they were doing, follow Him, and He would make them fishers of men?
Do you think he meant take men to go fishing in the lake? Of course not. It meant those men, like all of us today, can and should use what we have to get people to Jesus; to cast our nets to get people to see the light that they're missing out on.
Yesterday I heard Christine Caine speak and she was amazing. One of her gifts is, going after the bad guys regarding human trafficking and her other gift is inspirational speaking. Caine is doing what she was born to do to make fishers of men. She's helping people and she's spreading the word of God to empower people to do likewise. We can all do our part to get people to Jesus the way we do it. As for myself, how am I making fishers of men? My inspirational writing, blogging, ebooks, and social media are some ways I inspire broken and hurt people to see and follow Jesus and they in turn can do the same. How about you? What's your gift? How are you empowering and resonating with people to see Jesus?
