Go fish: Determination

Bottom-Line…

With great DISCOVERY comes great RESPONSIBILITY!


2 Kings 7:3-4

3 Now there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. “Why should we sit here waiting to die?” they asked each other. 4 “We will starve if we stay here, but with the famine in the city, we will starve if we go back there. So we might as well go out and surrender to the Aramean army. If they let us live, so much the better. But if they kill us, we would have died anyway.”


2 Kings 7:5-7

5 So at twilight they set out for the camp of the Arameans. But when they came to the edge of the camp, no one was there! 6 For the Lord had caused the Aramean army to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army approaching. “The king of Israel has hired the Hittites and Egyptians to attack us!” they cried to one another. 7 So they panicked and ran into the night, abandoning their tents, horses, donkeys, and everything else, as they fled for their lives. 


2 Kings 7:8

8 When the lepers arrived at the edge of the camp, they went into one tent after another, eating and drinking wine; and they carried off silver and gold and clothing and hid it. 


2 Kings 7:9

9 Finally, they said to each other, “This is not right. This is a day of good news, and we aren’t sharing it with anyone! If we wait until morning, some calamity will certainly fall upon us. Come on, let’s go back and tell the people at the palace.” 

1. The LONGER you are a Christian, the LESS often you’ll tend to fish.


Acts 4:20

We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.


2. The longer you are a Christian, the MORE you’re RESPONSIBLE to fish.


Romans 10:14

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?


Bottom-Line…

With great DISCOVERY comes great RESPONSIBILITY!


2 Kings 7:9

Finally, they said to each other, “This is not right. This is a day of good news, and we aren’t sharing it with anyone!
