Listen! Listen quietly and carefully in your heart. Hear Jesus proclaiming to you, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of  people”. Yes, Jesus uttered these words centuries ago, but they still ring in our consciousness today. But to follow him, we must know him through reading, studying, and embracing. Ask yourself, “Do I attend a class, or go “out of my way” to learn of him. One sermon per week doesn’t “make it”. To fish for people, we must learn how Jesus fished primarily with his lifestyle and then his lips, and he is the greatest of all fishermen. Jesus exclaims, “Repent” meaning a fundamental change in priorities and values. He must come first. Do we have the courage to fish for people the way Jesus did?
