I’m not much of a fisherman (in the literal sense) but this last week I think I discovered the key…Go to where the fish are!
The truck (in the video below) pulled up next to me, my boy and little girl as we were fishing in the beautiful mountains of Colorado just a few days ago. When it pulled up we inched closer, took this video and then caught the fish you see in the picture above (and about four more “big ‘uns”!)
Jesus said in Matthew 4:19, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of people…” And the key to fishing for fish is the same key to fishing for people…proximity! If we don’t get out of our Bible bubbles and get to the places where God is “stocking the pond” we’ll never catch our limit (or more!)
How do you do get to where the fish are?
Take a co-worker out to lunch.
Talk to a neighbor.
Strike up a conversation at the shopping mall.
Bring it up on Facebook with that old high school friend.
Inch closer to where the fish are, make the cast and pray that they are hungry for the truth of the Gospel!
