“Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”
Have you ever gone fishing? Have you ever caught a fish? If you haven't gone fishing, I recommend you do. It's so much fun and so exciting when you feel the tug of the string on your fishing rod.
Did you know that God has called each of us to be fishermen? Not to catch physical fish, but to be fishers of men. Now, don't go walking around with a fishing rod and hook to catch people. The way we fish for people is by telling them about Jesus!
“...we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed.”
Have you ever gone on a long trip? You are so excited to get to the place you are going that the it seemed like you were never gonna get there. You and I are on a similar trip, but our destination isn't some amusement park or beach. Our destination is HEAVEN!
Before Jesus left, he told his friends that he would be back again soon to take them with him. He was going to prepare a place for them. All they had to do was wait and be ready because no one would know the t...
“Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well.”

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
Do you play any sports? What do you like about playing the sport that you play? Would you be able to play if you were alone? If no one was on your team? Probably not. It's not as fun right?
You, me, and everyone who believes in Jesus are also on a team. Not a big sports team, but on God's team. God put us on this team so we could help each other and fulfill his mission. This is the Church!
The Church of Jesus is more than just a building we go to every Sunday. We are the church everywhere we go. We are the b...
How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly? It has to go through a process. It starts off with a little egg. Then in grows into a caterpillar. The caterpillar then goes into a cocoon to come out a beautiful butterfly!
You and I also go through a process. When we give our lives to Jesus, God calls us "holy." We are cleaned from all our yucky sin. Every single day we have to strive to be more like Jesus. This is called "Sanctification."
Jesus left an example for us to follow. He gave us his word to guide our path. He sen...
