Day 20

Fishers Of Men

“Follow Me And I Will Make You…”

We have established earlier in day 17 that drawing near to Jesus will result among other important things, a love for souls because Jesus came to win souls to God. His very first followers were offered an outcome. He said He would make them fishers of men. In other words, they would become people who led others to salvation in Him.

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Matthew 4:19 NKJV

We all have a part to play in being evangelists for God’s Kingdom. I met an older lady recently (79 years of age) who carries a set of call cards she designed herself to hand out to people. I was impressed by her sincerity of heart and purpose. I imagine how many lives she has touched and continues to touch by this gesture.

The Gospel Is STILL Powerful (Romans 1:16)

The answer for humanity is still the Gospel. No other message saves, heals, delivers, and guarantees the future of our souls. This is yours and my message to the unbeliever. However, we need the wisdom of God to know when, who, and how to communicate.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Romans 1:16 NKJV

Your personal story of the Gospel’s impact on your life is very powerful. Have you tried sharing it with anyone recently?

Enduement From Above (The Holy Spirit)

We cannot be effective witnesses without the power of the Holy Spirit. Throughout Scripture, everyone God used in one way or the other for His glory was moved by the Spirit of God.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 1:8 NKJV

The Holy Spirit indwells every saved believer but that’s not all. He also comes upon us for the enduement of power and fills us up as we return to the altar of prayer and fellowship with Him regularly. In tomorrow’s and final 21-day devotional, we will address this subject more.

Lord, Make Us

Paul’s passionate plea in his letter to the church in Rome in Chapter 12 is to submit our bodies as a living sacrifice to prove God’s will. A sacrifice indeed does not remain the same after it is placed on the altar. It is completely transformed by the fire. It dies!

I have often said, “God saved us to kill us (our flesh) slowly for His glory.” Paul says in Galatians 2:20:

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20 NKJV

He also said in his letter to the church at Corinth “I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.” It means he was making an intentional choice for God’s will and not his. One who will be a soul winner will begin to place more emphasis on God’s Kingdom than his own. Did God not promise that if we put His Kingdom first all other things would be added to us? I trust the Lord to do exactly what He said.

But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

2 Timothy 4:5 NKJV

May the Lord work in us to do the work of the evangelist (bringing souls into the kingdom of God) among our relatives, acquaintances, coworkers, etc. Pay attention this year as the Lord leads you by the hand to that one person and maybe others that He is asking you to help in their walk towards Him and having them firmly planted in His body.

Bring them to Church. Amen!
