Evangelism is like Fishing

4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” 6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. 7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” 9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; 10 and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” 11 So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him. - Luke 5:4-11 (NKJV)

Evangelism is a lot like fishing:
  • You have to go out to bring them in
  • You cannot catch any more than your net can handle
  • You can spend all day out there and never get a nibble
  • You have to exercise patience
  • You can use a lot of bait and lures but never catch many fish
  • Your best option is to get up early and go where the fish are really biting
