Knowing your primary occupation
June 22, 2011
And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
If you’ve ever done any scuba diving or snorkeling, you know that right under the surface of the ocean, there are all kinds of beautiful coral reefs and spectacular sea life. And on many of the big reefs, you can see miles and miles of beautiful schools of fish and other creatures. Now when you go fishing, you take those fish out of that beautiful life when you bring them into your world where they can’t live.
But when you’re fishing for men, the exact opposite happens. You see, people are born into spiritual death. And apart from faith in Christ, they remain in death forever.
When you become a fisher of men, however, you play a part in taking men and women out of death and into a beautiful life. And not only that, you also get to share in the victory that comes when a sinner is brought to Christ as God supernaturally uses you to draw people to him!
So as you live your life, remember that your primary occupation is a fisherman who’s bringing people out of death and into eternal life in Christ. Every other job you have is just a lake where you can fish for more!
WHATEVER YOUR JOB IS, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE PRIMARILY A FISHER OF MEN, BRINGING THEM OUT OF DEATH AND INTO LIFE WITH CHRIST.
