Mark 1:17(b) [KJV] Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
When I came into my friend’s life, she was in dark waters. God wanted me to get her out of the dark waters. He wanted me to show her His way through my life. Now, I am not a saint – just a sinner striving to follow Jesus. Someone committed to keep coming after Him. I am in a small boat trying my best to stay dry from those dark waters that surround us all.
Guess what? The more I committed to keep coming after Him, the more I become a better fisher – His fisher. And as I helped my friend come out of her dark waters, Jesus helped me stay dry from my dark waters. We both became better fishers – His fishers.
As you go to work today, remember scripture requires you to follow Him and to be His fisher. So, think about who is in those dark waters. A coworker? Someone you meet in passing? Don’t worry about the timing or what to say. Jesus will bait your hook. Just remain committed to keep coming after Him and be prepared to cast your line at His command.
Today at work, save someone from those dark waters. Cast your line. The more you are committed to keep coming after Him, the better you will be as a fisher – His fisher. And your workplace – and your life – will be blessed to have others dry in His boat.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray. Thank You for Your committed love and grace so I can become a better fisher – Your fisher. Amen.
