    I could go a lot of different directions with today’s reading. The first implication of the idea that Jesus is talking about cast net fishing versus bait fishing is that bait fishing is the “attractional approach to fishing for men (making Disciples). It involves the use of bait to lure the fish to where you are. It is a one on one approach to evangelism. Whereas, net fishing is a relational/network (no pun intended) approach to fishing. It involves casting a wider net to where the fish are. Both of these approaches will catch fish, but the cast net approach will catch more fish.

    I definitely believe that Jesus advocates the case net approach (Luke 5:4-7, John 21:6) to fishing for men (Disciple Making). We are the net that is cast out from the boat (church) to where the fish are. Each one of us is a knot in the net. Together we can bring in a larger catch, but it has to be a unified coordinated approach directed by Jesus. Do you see where I am going with this?
