“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!" -John. 14:12-14
Jesus told us to be fishers of men. If you never go out to fish, this is will be impossible! You can’t become a fisher (of men) just by reading about it, without ever have fished! We are called to go out, to meet the people were they are; not to let the people come to us!
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16 NASB.
“Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.”
Luke 10:3 NASB
Everywhere I come I try to start a conversation with people leading up to sharing my faith with them! I tell people that “Christianity is no philosophy!”, not just believing in dogma’s; it’s real! “Do you have pain? I want to pray for it and you can feel yourself how real my God !s!
Some conversations we (my wife and I) had during these 4-days:
Sunday I met some guys who just came from a big Lutheran church. They said they believed also in Jesus but when I asked them how they were baptised I understood it was not with full emersion so I told them why I believe it should be with full emersion and gave them my contact card. They were happy but one said that it doesn’t matter so much because we are all brothers. I didn’t want to start a word fight but said that I think it is quiet important. I trust that God will lead them to the truth if they are sincere searching for God! We hugged each other and said goodbye (they were on their way!). Now that I’m home I think I should have tried to tell them more about why I think it is really important. We can’t just do it how “we” want to do it. We all need to follow Christ’ example and be baptised on our own faith by full emersion.
If you want to be more skilled in the “fishing of men” you must read some fishers advice from our brother in Christ Dough Collins! We send lots of blessings and love to all our brothers and sisters in Christ our Lord! If you have questions don’t hesitate to write to us! ❤
