Are you fishing?
July 7, 2010
And he [Jesus] said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
It's amazing to me that there are some Christ-followers who never share their faith, who never give to the work of Christ, and who never get involved in the ministries of the church.
Let me tell you why these activities are so important. One day, you and I will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and we will give an account for what we did with our lives. Many Christians will stand naked before the throne of God with nothing but the charred embers of a wasted life to place in his nail-pierced hands.
You need to know this. No one gets a free pass to live however they want! As followers, we're accountable to tell others about his love and what he has done for us. In fact, we should be utterly compelled by his mercy and forgiveness to share Christ.
If God has changed our lives, we should make certain that we don't go to heaven alone! Let's take as many people with us as possible… starting with our own family and extending to the whole world that we can touch for Christ.
Let me challenge you today. Jesus called us to be "fishers of men." If you're not fishing, it's because you're not following! Share Christ with your world today!
NO ONE GETS A FREE PASS TO LIVE HOWEVER THEY WANT.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
