And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19 NASB)
As the Lord Jesus was looking for His disciples, He looked for men with a willingness to serve Him, and ultimately spread the good news of His message of salvation. He selected Peter and Andrew as they were working — as fishermen. Jesus didn’t select those with the highest education, those who learned from the famous Rabbis, or those who worked at the synagogue, but instead called them from normal professions or jobs.
The Lord Jesus continues to do that today. He isn’t calling disciples just from those who graduate from great universities, those who go to seminary and those who work at a church. He is calling every one of us to become disciples. He wants us to learn more about what it means to truly follow Him, and then He wants us to tell others about having a personal relationship with Christ. You have the ability to prevent someone from spending all of eternity separated from Almighty God. “So What” is a soul worth? Certainly it should be worth a little of your time and effort to tell them about Jesus and the difference He has made in your life.
That you would learn what it means to follow Jesus and become a fisher of men.
