Fisher of Men By Brenda Drake

            I am not a fisherman, but my heart thrilled at Jesus’ invitation for His disciples to become a fisher of men.  Somehow I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.

Fisher of Men

Fishing can be a lot of fun;
Relaxing for the old and exciting for the young.
It takes a little preparation; but the most important thing,
Is to have the right bait more than anything.
The fishing the Lord desires us to do,
Attracts others to the water that holds promise for you.
The heart that hungers for souls will do well;
For they draw by the life-testimony they tell.
All people have a need deep within;
To be saved from the desperate death-hold of sin.
Come, let us go fishing allow your day to be,
Mindful of souls that are hungry and seeking to be free.
Throw out the truth (the life-line) to them.
It is done by living what you believe and by being a friend.
Be ready always to share the good news of Christ;
Be always a willing, living sacrifice.
Come, this is the day perhaps for a big catch,
I will go with you for I know right where they’re at.

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