”But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” (1 Peter 3:15)
Amazing! Simply Amazing, this poor fisherman, along with his brother, Andrew, dropped the fishing net they were mending, and without a “fair-thee-well”, immediately became followers of Jesus Christ for the rest of their lives. They continued to fish, but this time it was for the hearts of men as well. Amazing that this uneducated man could write a Gospel, in two parts, that has inspired people for over two-thousand years! Amazing that, when accosted to be a follower of Christ, he did as Christ predicted, DENY it! Amazing that even this sinful weakness was totally forgiven. Amazing that he not only was inspired to write scripture, he was so totally dedicated to his ministry, he was crucified on a cross, upside down! AMAZING! God created Peter for this specific purpose and Peter is found faithful. You and I have been created for divine purpose, donchaknow? Really! We are each provided gifts necessary for our ministry mission, but until we come to the realization of “LOST WITHOUT JESUS”, until we accept God’s Greatest Gift by believing in Jesus and following Him, our “gift” will be for naught and our eternal soul will forever reside in torment. Give the big fisherman a chance; read 1st and 2nd Peter for yourself. No excuse, like “I don’t have a Bible”, since it is available on the internet for FREE! You too can be “too anointed to be disappointed and too blessed to be depressed”, seriously.
And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates. AMEN
