Our Friday night meeting for this tournament was held at Creola First Baptist Church in Creola, Alabama and our speaker was the Pastor Al Brown.

The verse he spoke on was from Mark Chapter 1, starting in Verse 16:

“Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his  brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.”

Pastor Al explained what it means to completely follow Christ. He explained that we must have total trust and confidence to follow someone. We must believe and trust in Christ wholeheartedly. Being a believer is not just saying a one time prayer. It is a calling from Christ that we have to answer and we must submit all we are to him. Evidence of a believer is following Christ and his path rather than our own path. We often expect Christ to follow us and what we have planned for our lives but that’s just not how it works. Trust Christ and you will become a new person. You will be born again and a new creation. You will be hungry for Christ and want to be near those that love and speak of him as well. You will want to share anything and everything you know and have experienced with Christ. You will want to love and serve others. We each must find our gift for serving the Lord. Some preach, some sing and some just service quietly. When we get the call from the Lord, we must respond immediately. We should commit fully to him as the disciples did. Every one of us is called to be a fisher of men so we must do our part.

Pastor Al shared something with us to help us remember what to do or say when we are trying to share the gospel or a testimony. L-I-F-E. The L is for Love. The I is for remembering we are all Imperfect sinners. The F is for remembering we can have Forgiveness. The E is for remembering our reward is Eternal Life.

Fisherman and Christians have many of the same attributes such as: Patience, Skill, Persistence, Quietness and Hard work.

With fisherman: Patience is casting 1000 times in one spot to get that big one to hit. Skill is knowing how to work each bait at the perfect place and time. Persistence is not giving up if you miss that one or if you finish last in a big tournament. Quietness is letting a mentor teach you when you think you know it all. Hard work is fishing in any kind of weather conditions, miles and miles away from home, researching water levels, temps, grass and any types of cover and current.

 With Christians: Patience is just that, patience. It is not in our timing, it is in the Lord’s. Skill comes from having the knowledge of Christ and his word and knowing when, where and how to share it. Persistence is not giving up living for Christ and his plan for you. Quietness is listening to Christ and others and supporting them. Hard work is hard but is worth the reward of eternal life.

The difference is that fisherman are fishing for that big sack of bass  to win that big tournament and Christians are fishing for souls  to bring others to Christ so that we may all have eternal life.
