Heart of Fishers of Men

Updated on July 23, 2017

Jesus is calling us to be fishers of men, no matter who you are or how old you are as long as you have the heart that He is looking for you can be one. I want to share with you 3Es that our hearts must have for us to be Jesus' fishers of men.

Experienced the Amazing Grace - Salvation

It is our primary task as christian to be fishers of men. The world is the big blue sea where different kinds of fish are in, fish are people we need to bring to Christ,it means sharing the gift of Eternal life -salvation, to let them experience the amazing grace that God has offered to those who will believe in Him as Lord and savior. We are offering them the salvation God wants to give, that's why it is very important that we have experienced that amazing grace of God first in our lives. We can not give and share what we don't have. John Wesley the founder of Methodism has experienced that amazing grace of God, His salvation, he called it the heart warming experience and he didn't keep it only to himself, he shared to to others. In the New Testament there was also a woman who has shared God's amazing grace and the whole city has been saved. She was the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met and gave the living water. (John 4: 28-19,39). It is so important for a fishers of men to have experienced the salvation of God so that we can share it to others and we maybe able to fish a lot for the Lord.

Enduring Love and Faith to God

It is such a wonderful feeling to know that Christ is already in our heart, knowing that we have been saved by His amazing grace is the best incredible feeling of assurance. But, it will not end there we need to care for that love, time will come that trials and temptation will come to us. Our love and faith for our God must endure all those testings. We must remain in Him and our faith must be stronger than our doubt and fears. No matter how difficult the situation is, how discouraging the words are, how painful and rejected we are, our love and faith for Him must be there because it is God's love and our faith in Him that will help us carry thru all those obstacles. We must have that enduring love and faith for our God. in Webster dictionary enduring means lasting, durable, synonymous with ageless, continuing, dateless. Our love for our God and faith in Him must be ageless no matter how big our problems are, continuing no matter how difficult our situation is because it is only thru our God we can endure all those trials.When we use all our resorts and fail there is God waiting for us to depend on Him and allowing Him to handle things we couldn't handle anymore. 1 Peter 5:6-9 says "Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil walks about like a roaring lion searching who he may devour. Resist Him, steadfast in your faith, knowing that the sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world." (NIV). and in Hebrews 12:1-2 He assures us that He is with us in our race "Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith."

Empowered by the Holy Spirit

And lastly, the heart of the fishers of men needs the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. We need his guidance and power. He will give us strength to share to all kinds of people. He will give us the passion and compassion to go out, seek and save the lost.In Acts 1:8 it says "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth". God commanded us to be Fishers of Men, no matter how old how young you are as long as you have the heart that has these 3Es Experienced the saving grace of God, Enduring love and faith and the Empowerment of the Holy Spirit, you will be a great witness for Christ. Therefore Go! and be Fishers of Men.
