“…And He said to them, Come after Me [as disciples--letting Me be your Guide], follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men!…” Matt 4:19 AMP, italics and emphasis mine
Jesus talked to the disciples about fishery for they were fishermen; yet He tells them that He will MAKE THEM fishers of men. He was saying, I know you are fishers of fish, but I will turn you into fishers of men…all you have to do is FOLLOW ME (take my guidance, obey and trust me).
When a fish is caught, it is taken from the world that it can survive (water) into the world that it can’t (dry land)...it has to die. Jesus was saying, I will show you how you can take people from their world of sin into my world where they will die in themselves but be alive in Christ (Rom 6:11; 8:10)
