Fishers of Men
Ezekiel 47 shows a prophecy of wonderful healing waters flowing from the throne of God and of fishermen along the waters, “It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt” (Eze 47.10, 11).
These fishermen are what we would call fishers of men, preachers of the healing waters of the gospel and of the Spirit, starting with the apostles, showing that they would bring in every kind of people into the church, and not just the Jews!
Are you receptive to people coming into the church, although they might be of another nation or race? DR
To Have Fullness of Joy
What John said of First John, we can say of all Scripture, “And these things we write to you that your joy may be full” (1Jo 1.4).
Read First John, believe what it says, do what it says, and find the fullness of joy that John wrote about. DR
