“Fish” With Light!
As we continue meditating on Christ’s second command, we see that the ultimate purpose for following Jesus is to become fishers of men. God loves people, and He wants to draw many people to Himself; it is not His will that any should perish. But how will He make us effective fishermen? The answer is found in an understanding of the fishing methods of Christ’s day. Peter and Andrew were fishing with nets during the day when Jesus called them. However, James and John were mending their nets, indicating that they fished at night, which can be far more effective.
