The last thing Jesus said to His disciples was the great commission,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”- Matthew 28:18-19
The first thing Jesus said to His disciples was,
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said,”and I will make you fishers of men!”- Matthew 4:19
Our purpose in life is to make disciples, to spread the word of Jesus. How do we fish for men? Fish are attracted to bait, so how do we become baitable? To be more Christlike.
- What is our purpose in life?
- How can you fish for men?
- Who are some people that you can be praying for to come to Christ?
- What is one thing you want to be more accountable in to be more Christlike?
To be more Christlike and “baitable” we will be studying Proverbs 31 and Attributes of Jesus in the Gospels.
Ending Bible verse:
“Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as day. The Lord will guide you continually, watering your life when you are dry and keeping you healthy too. You will be a well watered garden, like an ever flowing spring. Your children will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as the people who rebuild their cities and walls.” -Isaiah 58:10-12
