17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
One of the reasons we become followers of Jesus is to declare to the lost that there’s hope found in Him. We must proclaim Jesus Christ and His death on the cross (The Gospel) which will bring salvation to the listener who believes. Once the person is restored to a right relationship with God, he/she will start to do God’s will, fishing for people. All we have to rely on is the Word of God, our anchor that keeps us from believing in a lie or else those we catch won’t be for the Lord.
