THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
The reason God called disciples to be "fishermen:"
YOU catch 'em, HE'LL clean 'em!
And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make
you to become fishers of men.
Light from the WORD.
If you really ARE a disciple of Christ, then
you really WILL "become fishers of men!"
It is God's desire to bring all people to salvation through surrender
to Christ. (2Pet 3:9)
God's desire is PLANTED in the born again Christian's heart the
moment he/she is saved.
When a person is called to be saved, he/she is also called to
become a "disciple."
ALL Christians are called to be disciples.
That's what Matthew 28:19 is all about.
“Go ye therefore and TEACH...”
The Greek word for "teach" is matheteuo, which means "to disciple."
A disciple is one who keeps in constant communion with Christ by
being a student of His Word (and through prayer).
Through discipleship and study of God's Word God enables a person
to become "fishers of men."
Are you really a disciple of Jesus Christ?
Then, let's "go fishin'"!
