How to Fish for People Tag

If You Aren’t Fishing, Then You Aren’t Following

You can’t go fishing unless you go out to where the fish are found. People without Christ aren’t knocking down the doors of our church to get in. We have to go out after them. That’s why the Great Commission of Jesus begins with the word, “GO.”


The Doctor’s Gone Fishin’

Do you realize that every experience of healing costs Jesus something? When the woman slipped through the crowd and touched the hem of His garment, Jesus said, “I felt power go out of me.” All healing from the hand of Christ—emotional, relational, physical, or spiritual—comes at a high cost to the Savior. In order for us to have our sins removed, Jesus had to bear them Himself. The Bible says, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
