I am not a fisherman. There are a few reasons, primarily this: a good day for fishing is an even better day for bike riding. Second reason? I’m not a big fan of cleaning the fish. Catching fish is fun, but what you have to do between catching and eating is just a little beyond me.
For many of us, the work of making disciples of Jesus is much the same. I’m not sure about you, but I think I’m more worried about evangelism being successful than unsuccessful. If I share my faith and it’s rejected, I can carry on as usual. If the Gospel is accepted, then I need to get to work on helping this new believer learn to walk with Jesus. I like bringing a person to faith & I like working with mature believers, but helping them grow in maturity is just hard work.
