Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." (Matthew 4:19)
Every follower of Jesus Christ is to be a fisher of men. There is no greater treasure to be collected than people. People are the only treasures we can take with us when we leave this earth. How are we to catch people? What kind of bait are we to use? Where are we to go fishing? The best catchers of fish are those who fish on a regular basis. Therefore, a lifestyle of evangelism should prove to enhance our ability to catch people for the kingdom of God. The best bait is a joyful, blessed life. And the best place to catch fish is to cast our lines wherever the fish are biting. We have to go to the fish; we cannot expect the fish to come to us. Few fish jump into the boat. The best fishermen have a plan and a place to go. They go expecting to catch fish. Let's, therefore, grab our bait and tackle and let's go fishing.
