His Fisherman

christian fish symbol

16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
Mark 1:16-18

~~~~~~~~~~~

Engrafted child of God, look at yourself:

The light of Christ should shine from every pore.

When you were saved, you died to your old self.

You once were mute, now you must stand and roar!

Can’t you feel Jesus running through your veins?

With every pulse He bids you harvest souls.

The day grows short; so little time remains.

You’ve work to do to help Him reach His goals.

The day you dropped your nets to follow Christ,

You gave up all you had to be like Him.

He’s making you a fisher well sufficed

To cast the gospel wide with love and vim.

When you made Christ your Savior you began

To learn how to become His fisherman.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: You are an active participant in the Great Commission. Now get to work.

1-16-15 Fellowship

Tripod-of-Life_Holy-Trinity

To fellowship with God and Christ His Son

Is truly what we strive for every day,

For when we’re one with them as they are one

The Triune God will have His will and way.

Adopted by our God, He’s Father now,

So we draw near to Him through Jesus Christ,

And in His loving presence He’ll endow

His endless love of us so well sufficed.

In Jesus we partake the bread of life;

His boundless love does pulse within our veins

To send us to a world of pain and strife

To rescue more of His that still remains.

In God the Father and in God the Son

In God the Holy Ghost we all are One.

~~~~~~~~~~~

… truly our fellowship is with the Father,

and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:3 KJV

12-19-14 Chosen

god-chose-you

When you were still a slave and doomed to death,

The Savior bought you with His very life.

He chose you for His own, your pulse and breath,

Ordained to follow Him through sweat and strife.

When you were Spirit-filled and born anew,

He showed you how to love and live and pray,

Then sent you out to search the whole world through

To find the lost before they slip away.

The souls that come to Him must be matured

To carry on the work He’ll have them do.

Whatever you’re in need of rest assured,

Just ask the Father, He will see you through.

Christ chose you, He ordained you, You are His,

A slave to Jesus now, and all He is.  

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ye have not chosen me,

but I have chosen you,

and ordained you,

that ye should go and bring forth fruit,

and that your fruit should remain:

that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name,

he may give it you.

John 15:16 KJV

10-31-14 Not in Temples

not in temples

You cannot place a label on the Lord

That puts Him in a box of any sort,

And those who try must surely be ignored;

A trillion billion words would come up short.

You cannot build a temple or a church,

Then tell the world He dwells within its walls.

A claim like that is vain and will besmirch;

You cannot bind Him to the greatest halls.

The Spirit of our God is everywhere;

He’s closer than your pulse, your breath, your mind.

Just open up your heart and go in prayer;

He’s waiting for you Here, a cinch to find.

God made the world and all the things therein;

The only place He isn’t is your sin.

~~~~~~~~~~~

God that made the world and all things therein,

seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth,

dwelleth not in temples made with hands

Acts 17:24 KJV
