Fishing in a Bucket

Posted on December 3, 2022 at 9:50 AM

Fishing in a bucket is metaphorical for catching fish already caught. Catching fish is a skill learned through practice. You can find many reasons not to go fishing. It's raining, too cold, it's too hot. Excuses can keep you from catching the big one. You can't catch fish sitting at home.

You got to have a rod and a reel with a baited hook. Get some good tools. Fish are attracted to many colorers. Timing is a factor; early morning is a time to reach your goal.

In the Bible, Jesus chose fishermen to be His disciples. He used a parable of fishing as a way to teach evangelism. By saying, "I will make you fishers of men." Christ taught His disciples to lead people into the kingdom of God. You do not walk into the kingdom of God; you must be born into the kingdom. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be effective in our work. We are witnesses of the work of Christ. We must get out of our comfort zone and compel men to become a part of the kingdom of God.

When the disciples did not catch fish, Jesus encouraged them to launch into the deep. The same principle applies to us today. We must get out of the Church building and go out into the world and witness. Be Compassant, Be Concerned, and make Contact. You will reach your goal.
