Fishers of men

Wherever Jesus went he watered the seed, which was the Word of life, these faithful and true words, which transform all who receive it. Because Jesus is the bread of life and without that bread of life we can not be transformed by the Lord.

The word of God says that Jesus is the bread that gives life, that restores the afflicted, raises the fallen, and that Jesus came sent by the Father to fish men so that they know God and can be saved through His holy and true Words.

4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Luke 5:4-5

This was a powerful teaching with those two brothers, these men had all day cast the net, but they had not caught anything, then the Master comes and sends them to cast the net into the sea. They did it even though they had not caught anything all day, and they saw the miracle Jesus did with them.

And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

Luke 5:6

When we start looking for the Lord, our way of thinking changes, because when Christ comes our life everything is different, these men seeing this miracle decided to follow Jesus, because they knew that with their own strength nothing would emerge from nothing.

And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Matthew 4:19

Immediately the Master made the call, they did not think about it and they went with Him to be fishers of men, and that was how each one of the disciples was called, leaving all to follow Jesus.

And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

Matthew 4:20

That is why it is good to recognize that when God calls you, you must respond, listen to His voice, just as these two men were obedient, because He knows everything about you, He knows what is good for you and what does not suit you. God is in control of everything, be obedient and do not ignore His voice. He is your salvation.

    Fishers of men
    ============
    The Lord God created man and woman and put in them a free will to decide what they wanted to do, so our forefathers acted freely in the Garden. The Bible tells us how the Devil incited them to act against their Creator, as he first had done with Him. They were seduced and fell into sin.

    This liberty caused all people on the earth to be enemies of God and separate from the glory of God. Besides, from the moment they disobeyed the Lord, their minds and spirits changed and they were prone to do evil things against God’s will.

    But that was not God’s purpose when He created mankind. And, even at that moment, he had put forward a solution for this problem:
    The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God.
    It ‚Äúpleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
    (1 Corinthians 1:21)

    God, the Lord Jesus Christ, chose some believers to be fishers of men, to preach the Gospel of peace:

    “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)

    The apostle Paul tells the church in Rome:

    “For whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
    and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
    and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14)

    We all ought to give a reason of our faith with our words and a good behaviour, but there are some believers who are called to preach the gospel of peace…

    “… as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
    (Romans 10:15)

    Let’s pray and experience how God leads us all to bring good news of salvation
