Fishing Passion

“…Follow me and I will make you fishers of men…” (Mark 1:17)

When people ask me what my job is, my quick reply is, ” I don’t hav any”. You see, when you love your work, it ceases to be a job. It becomes a passion.

A passion is what you do regardless if you get paid or not.

I love what I do — fishing…fishing for men and women, that is.

I am passionate when it comes to speaking about God’s love. I get a high when I see a person dedicate his life to God after a speak. I am enthralled whenever I see people embrace the cross of Christ after I preach.

My passion was born 17 years ago, on the day Christ came into my life in a very personal and powerful way back in the University. Since then, the thought of preaching for the sake of the Gospel became my greatest joy — greater than all my other passions combined.

Truly, what Jesus told Simon and Andrew in today’s gospel rings true for me.

“…Follow me and I will make you fishers of men…” (Mark 1:17)

Today, I invite you to check your heart. What is your passion? What is that one thing you are willing to do regardless if you get paid or not?

My prayer is this: that you will find a passion so big that it can accommodate all your other passions combined.

If you have yet to find a passion, I invite you to try Jesus.

Follow Him…and He will teach you how to fish for men.

Enjoying fishing still,

Bobby Q.
