Fish in a bag ready to be purchased easily from the side of the street, and mobile for the seller as she sells from the back of her motorbike.
Jesus called to His first followers, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” Matthew 4:19
Fishing is unpredictable. There is no guarantee of reward. It requires patience and risk. In faith, the fisherman throws out their line in hopes of a reward for their efforts. In the same way, our model for evangelism is to share the message of what Jesus has done for us, and we speak it out into the world around us.
Like fishing, speaking out the Gospel is a risk. Fish will never be caught unless the line is cast, and people will never get saved unless we speak out.
Pray for those casting their lines today to fish for people. Ask God to bring in fish to those sharing His message.
