Jesus Said Be a Light in the World

Jesus Said Be...|0 Comments|

Jesus said, ”Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19, Mark 1:17).  In Luke 5:10, He used the words ” . . . from now on you will catch men.”  I love the almost whimsical way Jesus explains this crucial piece of the “What […]
