Whatcha Wanna Do?

Daily Reading:  Mark 1


Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” (Mark 1.17)


Devotional Thought:  "Whatcha wanna do?"  "I dunno.  Whatchu wanna do?"  Ever have that conversation?  Most of the time it results in little being done!


Today is a good day for that question.  What do you want to do this year?  I have two ideas... Follow and Fish.

·       Follow.  When Jesus called his first followers, he invited them simply to follow him.  Whether they were fishermen, tax collectors, change agents, business men, or regular people, they were to leave the familiar and go with Jesus.  When they asked him where he was leading them, he simply told them, "Come and you will see" (John 1.39).  We need to be like that.  Follow him step by step and he will show us the way.

·       Fish.  Having become followers, they were now to become fishers.  The fishermen were to become fishers of men.  The tax collectors became soul collectors.  Their new business was to present the good news!  As you follow Jesus this year, know that he wants to make you a fisher of men and women, boys and girls, teens and children.  Who is God pressing on your heart?  Write down that name or those names.  Pray for them.  Add to that list as God brings others to your heart and mind.  The Bible says that he who wins souls is wise (Proverbs 11.30).  Be wise!


Remember these two things this year.  Your mission is to follow Jesus.  Wherever he leads, go.  Whatever he says, do.  Whenever he speaks, listen.  Amazing love!  He has chosen you to follow him!  And as you do so, he wants to use you for his purpose - to fish for others who can know his love.


What do you want to do this year?  You better get started!


Prayer: Lord, thank you for inviting me to follow you.  Help me open my eyes to see the harvest around me.  Give me at least one soul for the Kingdom this year.  May I not rest until I’ve won another to you.  Amen.


Psalm of the Day: Psalm 1.1-6

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;

for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
