What is a Disciple? “Fishers of Men”

Luke 19:1-10, 2 Corinthians 5:18-21

When Zacchaeus encountered Jesus, we get a glimpse of Jesus’ mission: “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Jesus did not delegate a responsibility he was not already actively doing. He calls us to join him in his mission. If we are Christ-followers, then we are also messengers who have been given a “ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18). “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV).
