Topic: How to Be Spiritually Refreshed

Scripture: Then He said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men’
—Matthew 4:19

Greg Laurie Daily Devotions 15 July 2022 MESSAGE

I’m not much of a fisherman, but years ago I was in Alaska and went with some friends on a fishing trip for king salmon. I was with very seasoned fishermen who knew what they were doing, but I didn’t even know how to bait my hook.

I asked our guide, “How will you know when you get a real bite?”

“You’ll know,” he said.

It wasn’t long until my pole moved and I had a king salmon on my line. I reeled away until finally we had the fish next to the boat. And then it broke away. We talk about the one that got away, but in my case it really happened.

Jesus said to Simon Peter and Andrew, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19 NKJV). A literal translation of this is “catch men alive.”

There’s a certain happiness that comes from sharing the gospel. Proverbs 11:25 says, “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed” (NLT). When we reach out to others, when we put our focus on someone else, it spiritually refreshes us.

Jesus said, “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back” (Luke 6:38 NLT). He also said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35 NKJV).

Who, then, has God called to preach the gospel? All of us. In the original language, Jesus addressed the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19–20 to everyone, not just preachers, pastors, and missionaries.

God has called all of us to go into all the world and preach the gospel.
