Beloved, I want to ask if you’ve ever been toiling and nothing happened. If so, it is not that you’ve been operating wrongly but it is because this world if full of thorns that easily chokes us almost to death and stones that make our ground unfertile.
You may want to cast your net on the right side as Jesus told his disciples in John 21:6. This means that we need to do as He said; ‘18. And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men (Matthew 4:17-19).’
We do know that we all can not be fishermen so the question is how can we follow Jesus and become what He is asking us to do? Listen; there is no profession that Jesus is not a Master of because He created all. He created the world and all that are in it so no operation is without His knowledge. Your profession is seen as fishing profession by Him if only you’ll allow Him to use you to reach the lost.
A nurse for an example can reach the hopeless by praying for them openly, showing love, and telling them of the Master’s love and healing power.
This is what Jesus wants us to do; ‘But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides (Matthew 6:33).’ He wants us to follow Him and cast all our burdens upon Him (Psalm 55:22). This is not going to be easy because the world that crucified Jesus will not stand aside and allow you. The world cannot [be expected to] hate you, but it does hate Me because I denounce it for its wicked works and reveal that its doings are evil (John 7:7).’ Read John 15:19 and see that our LORD feels the same way.
The world will definitely hate you but our LORD is greater than all the power of the world (1 John 4:4). With all these troubles why should anyone bother to follow Jesus? In my case, the answer is simple; ‘I want to be rewarded’ because even though all believers will be saved and given eternal life, not all will be rewarded.
Hear what Jesus says to you and me; ‘Behold, I am coming soon, and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit (Revelation 22:12).’ Yes, He is coming very soon to reward those labourers in His vineyard. Study Matthew 5:12; Romans 6:22; Ephesians 6:8; Colossians 3:24; Hebrews 10:35; Hebrews 11:6; 2 John 1:8.
I know that we all love to be associated with a successful leader but working with him is one that satisfies. Follow the Master and be glad no matter your situation because, ‘We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose (Romans 8:28).’
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power? Are you washed in His blood? Today, you can both be washed and follow Him.
PRAYER POINT:
LORD, I come to you so that you can make me a fisherman using my profession. If there is anything that could have deprived me of this, I ask that you apply your blood to bring me in. Thank you LORD for I ask in your name.
