One of Jesus’ last words to His disciples was to go and bear much fruit. Bearing fruit for Jesus goes beyond just go character and behavior. Fruit bearing calls us to reach the world for Christ through multiplying disciples. The only way to bearing much fruit for Jesus is through intimacy with Him.
Being a fisher of men is to be a worker for God’s kingdom. God has called His disciples to become fishers of men because the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Transformation is what will make a believer to become a worker for Christ.
A seeker becomes a believer when the person puts his faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. A believing faith begins with trust in God’s word and repentance of sins. That faith continues the person to follow Jesus in His steps for the rest of his life.
The first chair of discipleship belongs to those who are seekers – people who are interested in spiritual truth. In John 1:35-42, Jesus engaged two seekers with a question and an invitation. Jesus’ invitation was for them to come and see. Today, the same invitation is given to all who are seeking the way, the truth and the life. If you are a follower of Christ, you are called to be part of Christ’s invitation to the seekers.
In order to make disciples, we must first understand who a disciple of Christ is. In Matthew 4:18-20. Jesus gave us a three-fold definition on who a disciple is based on the calling of His first disciples.
