Fishing on Sunday
And fishing season is still open.
Following our leader’s mantra, we’re all called to be fishers of men.
Even on Sunday.
Especially Easter Sunday.
Will you pray for Sunday?
Sunday is an Ugandan soldier who has become a dear friend of ours.
He is on the journey to following Jesus.
We are having the privilege of casting the net for our King.
At our African church this morning (we’re 8 hours ahead of CDT) we greeted each other with,
“He is risen.”
“He is risen indeed.”
Such a simple yet eternity-shattering statement.
We believe that King Jesus is alive and seated on the right hand of His father.
In these uncertain days in an unstable part of the world, the deep belief that Jesus rose from the grave is the solid rock of our faith.
Because he lives,
I can face tomorrow.
Amen and amen.
We wish each of you a happy and joyous Easter.
