God Sees and Understands Your Pain!

A Safe Harbor is Jesus

God knows in great detail the your suffering. He understands the pain and sorrow acquainted with grief and loss. He understands because He is all knowing. Furthermore, Jesus endured suffering, and experienced pain, even the pain of feeling abandoned. And because God is with you always, He knows that you are hurting. He sees your pain, and hears the cries of your heart. You are not alone in your suffering; He is there for you.


The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. ~~Psalm 34:15

Fishers Of Men

“And Jesus said unto them, ‘Come ye after Me, and I will make you become fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed Him.” Mark 1:17-18  (KJV)

Whether we wear a fish pin or not, as Christians we are members of the largest fishing club in the world.

To be a soul winner, to carry the gospel to the lost sinners, is not an option Christians can choose or reject. It comes with our calling.
To be an effective fisher, one must first of all be willing to leave his or her “nets.” Anything that keeps us from seeking the lost is a net that traps us and prevents our effective discipleship. This might be a job, wealth or poverty, or friends or family. Regardless of how attractive the item may be, we must be willing to leave it and follow Jesus.

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 22

“Have you not read what David did when he and his men were hungry, how he entered God’s house and ate the holy bread, a thing forbidden to him and his men or anyone other than the priests? Have you not read in the law how the priests on temple duty can break the Sabbath rest without incurring guilt? I assure you, there is something greater than the temple here. If you understood the meaning of the text, ‘It is mercy I desire and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned these innocent men. The Son of Man is indeed Lord of the Sabbath.”
Matthew 12:3-8 (NAB)
