Admittedly, I'm not much of a fisherman.  I enjoy it every once in a while.  I've been at times when the fish are biting and I've been too many times when the fish were obviously much smarter than I in that they completely avoided the bait.  One thing I know about fishing though ... if you are going to catch a fish you need something to catch it with; whether a rod and reel or a net ... or by some miracle even your hands ... it takes a tool of some sort to catch a fish.  It doesn't have to be an expensive rod and reel.  It doesn't take the best brand ... but it does take a tool.

In Luke 5:10 , I referred to it Sunday during preaching, Jesus tells Peter,
"henceforth thou shalt catch men." Just as in the natural realm of catching fish, it takes something to catch men.  So, what is the tool ... what do we use to do this?  Jesus reveals it in Mark 1:17 , "Come follow Me, and I'll make you to become fishers of men."  The simple truth is ... if we really ... really become followers.  Completely ... Committed followers.  We have this knowledge, he turns his followers into fishermen.  

Let me encourage you over the next 30 days.  Evaluate your walk with God.  Are you completely committed in following him?  If you are ... start fishing!  If you are not ... dive in completely ... and join the fishermen's club.
