Flying while fishing with Brenda Smith

FISHING IS OUR BUSINESS: Done any good fishing lately? You have to have the right tools to get the job done. That is your responsibility as a Christian. It is to learn to be a good fisherman.

Our objective as a church is NOT to build buildings.
Our objective is to use our building as a tool to win souls for Jesus.
If our building doesn’t help us accomplish that goal, it’s worthless to us.

If you have a great Sunday School - that is your Tool. If you have a great choir - that is your Tool. If you have a praise team, good brotherhood, usher board, etc. - Those are your Tools. The preaching, the communion, the offering, the youth programs, Special events… etc. - Your Tools!

We don’t EXIST to do those things.
We exist to bring people to Jesus, and all those activities are TOOLS.

Jesus said “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." (Luke 19:10) We have been given the privilege of fishing with Jesus. The privilege of making a difference for Him. Jesus may be asking you to put out a little deeper in your faith. To put down your nets and talk to somebody about Jesus. It wouldn’t be hard. All you’d have to do is tell someone what Jesus means to you. Jesus is your Tool. #GOFISH!
