Why the Fishing Report?

Jesus told His Disciples, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." The Fishing Report is my attempt recount as many personal witnessing encounters as possible. This is not a place I come to brag. As you can see here and here, I am far from perfect.

And Jesus said that when you do good, don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. If you seek the praises of men, you have your reward. I don't post these stories to brag or pretend I'm super spiritual, because I'm not. I'm just a guy that want to use the gifts God has given me (and primarily the gift of exhortation) for the purpose He has given me these gifts (primarily evangelism and encouraging Christians to share their faith).

I'm human, and I mess up. I'm no more spiritual than you are, if you're born again. I chicken out way more than I admit on this blog.

I post these encounters for 2 reasons:

1. To motivate me. If you don't see the Fishing Report very often in this space, feel free to post comments asking why. If there's no fishing report, that means that there's no fishing going on. And I've been called to be a fisher of men. And for over 2 years, I didn't share my faith with a single lost person.

2. To motivate you. Every second, 7 people die. By the time you put your head on your pillow tonight, over 150,000 people will have walked off this planet and into eternity. Then it's Heaven or it's Hell, for all eternity. Do you care? Do you care enough to get into a conversation with a lost person about Jesus?
