“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,” Matthew 28:19
“Why are we here?” This is a question we've all asked ourselves. We might think the answer is to do good or to try and make the earth a better place during our very brief time here, but the actual answer is very different.
The Bible tells us that we are here to rescue as many people as possible. But it’s not easy to be part of the rescue society because the enemy is always giving us “res-cuses.”
He tells us the waves are too high, we might get sunburned or it’s just better to sit under the shade that day. But as the Bible shows us, fishermen are hard workers. They spend all day, every day in the hot sun, on a boat, unsure of the catch for the day. And once the disciples were called to be fishers of men, they worked with even more diligence, because the catch was that much more important.
Are you obeying God’s call to be a fisherman of men?
Tell God you are ready to follow in obedience and get your feet wet! Ask Him to put your steps in motion today.
