A short thought inspired by Matthew 4:19 and Jim Putman's, Real-Life Discipleship.
Jesus says in Matthew 4:19, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men."

Fishers of men /__\ Make You

Discipleship starts with deciding to follow Jesus. Then, through the Holy Spirit, Jesus is the one doing the "making." He says, "I will make you." And into what? "I will make you fishers of men." We are to bring people into following Jesus as fishers of men and continue the process of allowing Jesus to "make" all of us into who we were meant to be.
And we were not intended to do this alone. If you aren't in small group right now, I would love to help you get connected! Send me an email!
