Matthew 4:18-20 MSG “Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work. Jesus said to them, “Come with me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.” They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.”
There are a lot more marketers today than fishers. As marketers, we persuade prospects to patronise us, we attempt to reactivate dormant relationships and it is our job to get existing customers to do more business with us. How about doing all that for Jesus and for the Kingdom of God?
Peter and some of the disciples were fishermen, and Jesus said He would make them new kinds of fishermen if they followed Him. Today, Jesus seeks to make you a new kind of marketer. He wants to teach you how to get men and women into the Kingdom of God instead of just signing on accounts, selling insurance policies, talking about products and services, and all that.
Peter and John didn’t ask questions, they simply dropped their nets and followed Jesus. How about you? Jesus might not be asking you to completely leave whatever you are doing right now, He might only be asking for a few hours of your day. What will your response be? Yes or no?#
