Text: Matthew 4:18-25
“…I will make you fishers of men…” How?
I. The lesson taught – “Follow me…”
A. His Presence – among the people.
B. His Promise – “I will make you fishers of men…”
C. His Practice – He proclimed the gospel with power.
D. His purpose – Luke 19 “…to seek and to save that which was lost…”
II. The lesson learned. We will look at one example tonight – Peter, Refer to Acts 2:14-40
A. His Presence. He was among the people.
B. His Practice – He proclaimed the gospel with power.
C. His Purpose – to seek and to save that which was lost –
D. His Promise – that they should follow Jesus and they would become fishers of men.
We must be involved in the service of God. What is that service? Being fishers of men.
The prerequisite is that – you must be saved.
– you must be faithful.
– you must be willing!
The perfect example to follow is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Also, though, the example to follow is the disciples as they followed the Lord.
They were not supermen – they were regular men
– they were regular women
They dealt with all of the thoughts, the fears, the joys, the wonders that we do.
Peter – what about us, we have left all to follow you – what do we get?
James and John – May we call fire down from Heaven and destroy these ungrateful people>
Martha and Mary – Lord, if thou hadst been here, he would not have died!
Peter – I go fishing (for fish)
Disciples – we will go with you.
Thomas – except I see in His hands the print of the nails…
You see, they were just people who determined to follow Jesus. Will you determine that tonight?
Do you have a presence among people?
Do you practice proclaiming the Gospel?
Do you purpose in your heart to seek the lost?
Do you have a plan to teach others?
Will you dedicate your life tonight to follow Jesus?
