New Glory Devotional: FISHERS OF MEN – Sunday, November 25, 2012

By Pastor Ayodeji Agbelusi

Memorise: “And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. ” (Mark 1:17).

Read: Mark 1:16-18

God has created you with a unique assignment on earth. You are not alive just for the fun of it. There’s a very unique purpose for creating and preserving you. Discovering this purpose should be your greatest quest and desire. If you miss divine purpose, you have missed the essence of coming to this world. Your life should revolve around God and not the world. I have seen several people in my few years on earth. Some have no other thought than to get better physically, in dressing, riches, travels and affluence. Outside these, they are useless to themselves, their families and the people round them. I’m happy to tell you today that the thoughts of God concerning you supersede all that and He has a better provision for you which will bring forth eternal results.

“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8).

I saw in a movie how a lady specialised in gathering other young ladies to be used and molested by rich men through fornication. She found joy in this evil to the destruction of innocent souls in hell. We all have our special roles in the lives of people around us. It’s either you are preparing people to get God or you are leading them to the gates of hell through your actions and counsel.

“And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. ” (Mark 1:17).

What are you doing about soul winning into God’s kingdom? Are you helping in this assignment or acting otherwise. If you will be sincere to yourself, you know where you belong. It’s been a while that you have surrendered your life to Christ but you cannot boast of a life that has been transformed from darkness to light through your spiritual labour. If I may ask you, what exactly are you doing for God? Remember He has done everything for you. He gave you HIs only begotten Son to redeem you from the powers of sin and to prepare you for a life after this sinful world. What assignment are you fulfilling? What’s your role in your local church. Are you supporting your pastor and other ministers or you are part of them that destroy the work of the ministry through ungodly side talks? What about people around you in your house and office? Are you fishing them for God’s kingdom or supporting their ungodly moves to the destruction of their souls? Are you a fisher of men like Jesus would like you be? It’s never late. Take up your cross today and be a part of the ministry of Jesus. Stop wasting your lifetime concentrating on beauty and riches. Beauty will soon fade away and money has wings. Don’t loose your soul through worldly lust. Get into Godly activity and prepare rewards for yourself in heaven.

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3).

Action Point:
Get started today. Make up your mind to get people into God’s kingdom instead of sending them to hell through your actions, words and lifestyles. Be a fisher of Men!
