What is a disciple? A disciple is one who makes a conscious decision to follow Christ in pursuit of becoming a fisher of men. In the fourth chapter of the gospel of Matthew as the Lord Jesus Christ was walking by the sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Peter and Andrew. Peter and Andrew were already saved prior to this event as related to us in the gospel of John 1:40-42. Now Jesus invites these two saved men to enroll in His discipleship program. He lets them know the goal or objective of discipleship to be that of fishing for men. We cannot avoid this clear presentation of the pursuit of a disciple to be a fisher of men.
