Matthew 4:19 (KJV)

And he saith unto them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Any avid fisherman knows it takes skill and patience to catch fish. One must know the habits of the fish, and the waters in which they reside, as well as the bait and lures that attract them. It is no different when fishing for men. Most fish are starved and will bite at anything that moves! But most men are anything but starved! Most men are stuffed full of sin, lies, and false teachings they’ve been listening to all their lives! Alcoholics and addicts have been using drugs and alcohol most of their lives to escape, reject, and hide from God’s Truth, making it extremely difficult to convince them that God’s Word says that He and His Son, Jesus Christ, are the only Hope and the only Way to Salvation and sobriety! Fulfilling the message of Matthew 28:19-20, and sharing the message of John 3:16 to alcoholics and addicts, whether in the streets, or in an AA meeting where Jesus is rejected, can be an uphill challenge! It takes a great deal of patience to convince recovering alcoholics and addicts that Jesus Christ is the only God who can answer prayers and transform the lives of sinners, alcoholics, and addicts!  
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV} Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Romans 8:25 (KJV)  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

  1. Colossians 4 (GNT)

    4 Masters, be fair and just in the way you treat your slaves. Remember that you too have a Master in heaven.

    2 Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as you pray, giving thanks to God. 3 At the same time pray also for us, so that God will give us a good opportunity to preach his message about the secret of Christ. For that is why I am now in prison. 4 Pray, then, that I may speak, as I should, in such a way as to make it clear.

    5 Be wise in the way you act toward those who are not believers, making good use of every opportunity you have. 6 Your speech should always be pleasant and interesting, and you should know how to give the right answer to everyone.
