Let's Go Fishing
18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 20At once they left their nets and followed him.
Jesus say's follow me and I will make you Fisher's of Men. All of us that are saved are now Fishermen & Fisherwomen. When is the last time you went fishing? Not long ago, I was going down the road in my truck and was praying and I said to the Lord, "Lord you said you have made me a fisherman, I want to go fishing today."
The Lord answered me and said "I will send you the fish, but you have to know what bait to use." While I was making a delivery at a Walmart Store, I was filling there oil tanks the manager was standing there, the Lord spoke to me and said here is your fish. I asked him Lord how Can I catch him? What bait should I use? The Lord said to me "Wait and you will see." As I was watching him he pulled a cigarette out of his top pocket. While he was lighting it, I noticed something on his forearm was a tattoo of a giant cross immediately God spoke to me and said there is your bait. I said to the man WOW you must really Love Jesus, dumb founded he said to me, Why do you say that? I said, you must Love Jesus to go through that much pain to put the cross on your arm. I told him I don't know if I could do that. He stamered and said, Yes I Love the Lord. The fish had taken the bait. Then in order to set the hook I then asked him where did he go to church? He put his head down and said he wasn't worthy to go to Church, that he would not fit in with the Church people. At that time I knew I had me a fish. A good Fish, and so I started to reel him in. I told him the Gospel Message, and how Jesus died for someone just like him. He said, He never had someone explain it so simple to him. He started to cry. It was now time to bring the fish in the boat. I asked him if he would like to receive Jesus Christ in his heart, he said yes. And I lead him in the sinners prayer.
Prices aren't the only thing falling at Walmart. People say it's too hard to witness. Witnessing is not hard. See you just have to Love to fish. God supplies the fish and the bait to make the catch.
So, I ask you when is the last time YOU went fishing? For that matter, it's time I go fishing again too.
I know this is a message that you need to catch, As I was writing this post the electric went out, and I just knew I had lost what work I already inputed. But because our God is so Good, when the power came back on and I signed back up it was saved as draft... Praise God!
Blessings to All ********* Remember Happy Fishing, don't let the big one get away!
