And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” (Matthew 4:19, NRSV)

According to the gospels, Jesus first followers were fishermen. Sure they knew how to fish for fish because that was how they made their living, but Jesus was now asking them to fish for people and as they would come to find - that was often harder and even more dangerous at times. Yet still that was what Jesus was calling them to do.


Now you might be thinking - what does it mean to fish for people? Well it is finding ways to make disciples – make followers of Jesus Christ. It was the calling from the beginning to the ending for these first followers’s ministry, and the truth is - it is our calling as well.


So, let’s start fishing…let’s lead others to get to know Jesus.
