Going Fishing

May 8

Daily Bible Reading: John 1:29 – 51

Verse of the Day: John 1:41 – “He findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted, Christ).”

Here is the first picture of a person leading another person to accept Jesus. Did Andrew have a great theological understanding of who Jesus was? Did he have all the answers? No. He had just met Jesus himself.

We don’t need to read people a long list of rules; we don’t need to instruct them in the great truths of Christianity. Our job is not to clean the fish, simply fish. Just fish.

It is not our responsibility to get a person saved, that’s God’s job. Our job is to introduce them to the Savior. We seek to present what He has done for us, and to encourage their relationship to Christ. So, today, get out your fishing gear, and fish. Share what He has done for you, and lead them to see Jesus.

Prayer: Jesus, I so often try to make coming to You so complicated. I am glad that it is simple, otherwise I would never have come.
