When Fishermen Don’t Fish from In the Eye of the Storm by Max Lucado
– Go deeper, Jesus knows where the catchable ones are!
Sometimes the fish are deeper and shallow fishing just won’t reach them!
– Let down your nets
That’s more than an invitation, more than just pointing the way, it’s bringing them in!
– Don’t give up
Steps for successful fishing
-Acknowledge you have someone in your life
-Pray for them and yourself
-Fast – skip a meal
-Be an example
-Introduce them to other Christians
-When they show up, don’t leave them alone – be their host!
-Discreetly ask others to engage them
-Jump on opportunities to share: scripture, social media post, sermon points, songs, videos, etc
Jesus said if we follow him, he’ll make us fishers of men, and if we aren’t fishing for men, maybe we aren’t doing a good job of following Jesus.Dave Gibson
