Let's GO Fishing

It's Time to Fish
 
From the very beginning, Jesus made clear that everyone who followed Him would fish for men.
 
"Follow Me . . . and I will make you fish for people!" (Matt 4: 19)
  • Jesus' introduction in Matthew 4: Every follower of Jesus is a fisher of men. 
  • Jesus' conclusion in Matthew 28: Every disciple is a disciple- maker.
In this one verse, Matthew 28:18, there is an very involved statement- "Make Disciples." By doing these 3 things.
  • Going
  • Baptizing
  • Teaching
We do so by 
  • Sharing the Word - We speak as we share
  • Show the Word - Baptism = identification.
  • Teach the Word - We don't just receive, we reproduce.
Our own IMB President David Platt once said "Disciple making is not simply what happens in a classroom for an hour or so each week; it's what happens when we walk through life together as a community of faith, modeling for one another how to follow Christ." 
While we are here on this earth we have been giving God's spirit for one reason, one purpose. Reaching the world with the gospel - OUR WORLD.
