Sunday Sentiments, Easter 2017 ~ I’ll Make You Fishers of Men…

A favorite garden statue I had in my Big House front garden bed.
Easter Sunday ~ He is Risen!
Risen indeed.

Since this is the Lord’s special day
I was thinking of how we are to be
fishers of men…

I’m not a good fisherman
in fact
I’ve hardly fished for real fish at all
though I love to eat fish!
And I’m a regular fraidy~cat when it comes
to talking to people about Jesus
which really makes no sense at all because
Jesus Himself is not scary.

But a lot of people are afraid of Jesus
and mostly because of us
Christians who say something wrong
or do something 
that shows our weaknesses and 
shows us as hypocritical.
I’m sorry for that, for my wrong actions
and sayings.

But Jesus isn’t hypocritical ~ He did what He
set out to do:
to save a world from themselves.
To save us from our sins by taking our place
dying on a cross.
The ultimate sacrifice for an imperfect world ~
Grace and Peace.

All we have to do is believe on Him
ask for forgiveness for what we’ve done
and follow His lead
read God’s Word 
so we know how to live:
  Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

It is that simple.
Plain truths on a Sunday celebrating the great
He has for us.

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  

 John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
