Sunday Service Sneak Peek for February 17, 2019 – Luke 6:17-26

It’s very easy to get caught up in the routine of daily life, the highs, the lows, the good, the bad.  As disciples of Jesus, it’s critical for us to be looking beyond this life for perspective, inspiration and power.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Luke 5:10

“Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.”

-Luke 5:10 NIV

Jesus spoke these words to Simon, later called Peter, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.  Let me start by saying that until quite recently the word “men” was completely gender neutral and commonly meant “human beings”.  The meaning was easily determined by the context by anyone who wasn’t looking for a reason to be triggered.  In this context it means human beings.  There are interesting parallels between fishing and evangelizing.  A fisherman, (sorry, fisher-person) has a goal, to bring fish into the boat.  Christians have a goal, to bring people into the kingdom of God.  Those who fish use a lure or bait. (minnows, leeches, spinnerbaits)  Christians use a lure.  (Love, forgiveness, God’s Word)  The difference being that those who fish do so primarily for their own enjoyment whereas Christians bring people into the kingdom of God so that those people will benefit from the love, forgiveness and peace given to them through faith in Jesus.  Sadly, many Christians have an aversion to fishing for people to bring them into the kingdom of God.  But notice, Jesus doesn’t say that Simon Peter will fish for men, He says Simon Peter will CATCH men.  Fishing is always more fun when you’re catching fish.  Jesus promises that if we will witness through our words and actions, He will bring a catch.  I pray this assurance from Jesus encourages you to wet the proverbial line for Him.
