And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” -Matthew 4:19 (NASB)
Jesus calls us from wherever we are with a job especially for us. Whatever our training, our skills, our vocation, He knows just how to use our strengths to further His Kingdom goals. Only simple fishermen, not public speakers or theologians, chosen by Jesus because they really knew how to catch fish – the best places to go, the most effective equipment and bait, reading the signs in the sea and sky, having patience even when dark waters hid the harvest below. They would be the perfect helpers to understand the Messiah’s mission, to cast His nets wide, and to have patient expectation for bountiful results.
Dedicate your work to the Master’s service and He will make it work.
