BRUCE MCGEE MINISTRIES
In the children's sermon, the pastor shared how to catch fish.
Then, he asked the children,
"How can we catch people for Jesus?"
One little boy said, "First, ya gotta throw 'em in the lake!"
16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and
Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you
to become fishers of men .
18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Jesus preached repentance.
He also called people to follow Him and become "fishers of men."
Actually, they are one and the same thing!
Jesus called His disciples to study and learn from Him.
And, He called them to pray diligently.
But, more importantly, Jesus called people to learn OF Him,
so they could lead others TO Him!
This is one of the reasons why the symbol of Christianity is
It's a matter of COMMITMENT!
When Jesus called Peter and Andrew, He called them to
A NEW LIFE!
It was a new life of doing Jesus' will!
When Jesus calls people to Him today, they are called to
A NEW LIFE!
It is a life of doing HIS will!
The fact is: learning OF Jesus will cause you to desire
leading others TO Jesus!
Learn OF Jesus!
Lead others TO Jesus!
You catch 'em, He'll clean 'em!!
