      Bait

      Mark 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make
      you to become fishers of men.  

      Don’t forget the people that need Jesus! In this error of self improvement, self
      focus, self achievement, and self empowerment, please people of God, keep the
      main thing the main thing. God desires to make you into something and does not
      desire to keep working and working on a product that he can never finish. What
      I’m saying is, there must come a time in your life when you are whole and
      complete enough to go out and begin to win people into God’s kingdom. You must
      be bait! Understand, it’s not the hook that attracts fish, but it’s the bait.
      And the
      bait has to be what the fish desires. I’m not talking about using something dumb
      like music or using a sub cultural tool like Hip Hop to speak their language.
      But I’m
      talking about living a life that is pleasing to the eye and shows progress and
      security.
      So much so that people desire to be and have what you have.

      The bait is you. You are the bait. Your life should reflect change that only the
      God of
      all God’s can give you. Your speech, your actions, and no compromising should
      make those that struggle in this life desire your freedom from struggles. But
      this
      requires YOU to be free. Many of us are spending our entire lives trying to fix
      what we
      keep messing up and this causes us to be in a bad place in the eyes of the
      world. And
      it makes it hard to reach them. Even though it’s the spirit of God that draws
      men to him,
      that spirit has to be in operation in a person! God wants to use you my friend.
      Not to
      be a great TV evangelist or a world renown celebrity preacher. But he wants an
      example
      of what his power can do when it’s operable in the life of a true believer! But
      when the
      saints are no longer saints in the eyes of the world, then what good are we to
      them?
      When they see us divorcing, getting caught up in sin, cussing, lying, and living
      like devils,
      then what kind of bait is that? What kind of fish will that catch? I’m telling
      you, we have
      to stop this madness and get ourselves together. When this economy fails, and
      the
      presidential candidate fails, and our very banking system fails, what will we
      say to the
      world that we did not warn? Get uncomfortable saint of God. The end is near and
      our
      nation is on the brink of disaster. If America won’t hear God now, they will
      when the
      bottom comes out of our economy. So, I suggest that we all get busy becoming
      fishers
      of men and begin standing for what is right before disaster strikes. Be God’s
      bait and
      help this country get back to him. We could save America from the danger ahead
      if we
      do what God says. Remember he said in 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which
      are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and
      turn
      from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their
      sin, and will
      heal their land.  

      Suggested Reading: 2Cor. 4:3, Phil. 2:15, James 1:26, 1John 2:2
