"Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Matthew 4:19
Fisher's Of Men
Have you ever wondered what the "fish" symbol
that some people wear or place on vehicles represents?
Well, the early Christians had
an expression in Greek:
"Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior."
And in the days of persecution they abbreviated
these words, using only the first letter
of each word.
These letters spell ichtbys,
a Greek word for fish.
God has made us His fishermen, and
the kingdom of heaven is like a big net
that was let down into the lake
and caught up all kinds of fish.
(paraphrasing Matthew 13:47)
How privileged we are to be selected
as His fishermen!
We have a joyful task set before us
as we witness for Jesus Christ
among the people here on earth.
Few of us consider fishing a tiresome chore.
We eagerly await and enjoy
every opportunity to use our rod and reel.
And as fishermen for Christ,
we should seek out every opportunity
to tell others that He is our only Savior from sin.
Let us react as the disciples did
when Jesus told them He would make them
fishers of men.
"And they straightway left their nets,
and followed him."
We, too, follow Jesus when we share
with others the message of
God's love and forgiveness in Christ.
Thank You, Father,
for making us "fishers" of men.
