SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 (MSG)
Why does the church exist? Is it to gather together for fellowship? To be encouraged and strengthened? To feed the poor and hungry? All those are yes, yet we often lose sight of what Jesus originally called us to do. What is that? Jesus wants us to Get Fishin’! When Jesus first called a few disciples to follow Him told them that he would make them, “fishers of men.” God desires to use us to reach others people for Him. In the next several weeks we will look at the Whats, Whys and Hows of fishing for people at Jesus tells us to Get Fishin’.
Over the last three weeks we have looked a Jesus’ call to become “fishers of men.” We have looked at the biblical basis, how to be wise and even the specific things to say, learning we need to be able to share our story of our journey with Christ. In this last week of the Get Fishin’ series, we look at one of the greatest “fishers of people” ever — the Apostle Paul. Specifically, we will look at his passion and how we can embrace that same passion for others as we can each become a Fishin’ Fanatic.
