Luke, Chapter 5, verse 9-10:
9 For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him, 10 and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”

The Lord says that to each of us.  We all play a role in the plan of God and are forevermore fishers of men.

Notice how our Lord took simple fishermen and using their raw natural talent he, even in their sinfulness, was able to mold them into legends.  To do this for them they had to have Faith.  Faith is the opposite of fear.  It is an expression of love.

Christ needs good men who hear the call of our Lord to be a fisher of men.  If today you hear His voice; harden not your heart.  Be not afraid.
