"It is better to do something imperfectly, then to do nothing at all."

"It is better to do something imperfectly, then to do nothing expertly."

Brant Baker did the best that he could.

He started a small home fellowship and eventually in a short period of time had hundreds of people involved in a healing ministry that traveled places to minister to others.

He could have just stayed at that small home fellowship.

 I wouldn't be here doing what I am doing if he had.

James 2:20
But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

My point being that if we don't cast out our nets, then nothing happens.

There is that individual human responsibility for us to act.

Luke 5:4
Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down YOUR nets for a draught.

They did that and look what happens.

The nets are so full it takes two boats to haul in the catch.

After fishing all night with no results in minutes their nets are full to capacity.

The result of this is they get the revelation that Jesus is no ordinary man.

He then tells them to follow Him and He will make them fishers of men.

There are many who came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior through the net that Brant Baker cast.

What if Brant had said to himself, "I can't do it, I have deep personal problems. I am not perfectly suited to the task."

He put himself aside and he looked to Jesus and cast out his net inspite of himself.

 He didn't let his own imperfect sinful personal life cancel out his call to the ministry.

I wonder, are we doing that?
