Matthew 4:17-19 (MSG)
Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work.

Jesus said to them, "Come with me. I'll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I'll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass." They didn't ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.


Many Christians don't know what it is the Lord wants them to do beyond going to church every Sunday.

Consider the scriptures above.

To me, Jesus is saying that whatever your job is, whatever you've been taught in or learned in the world, whatever talents or skills He's given you, if you come follow him, he will teach you how to use that very thing for the Kingdom of God.

If your regular work is to sweep floors at work and you come to Jesus, he will show you how to sweep away the trash in people's lives to draw them to him.

If you are a construction worker and you come to Jesus, he will show you how to build lives to draw people to him.

If you are a bus driver and you come to Jesus, he will show you how to drive along the route of life to pick up people for him.

Anyway, this is why you were created and given these things.

But for years, the devil blinded you to this truth. (2 Corinthians 4:4)

I am a perfect example of this.

Yahweh's word is truth!

Psalm 119:160 (AMP)
The sum of Your word is truth [the total of the full meaning of all Your individual precepts]; and every one of Your righteous decrees endures forever.
