Here recently the Lord has been leading me to write out for further clarity the importance of discipleship and the vitality of recognizing the spiritual maturity of others before we speak. As we look upon the disciples we can recognize that not only did they go out to share the Good News but they also took responsibility for the new births. They did not just care about the “numbers” of who came to Christ but they understood their responsibility of continuing to teach Gods Word in order for each new child to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Lord recently led me from my daily writings at BLM, to living it out in faith, at a little place on the edge of the TN River called The Outpost located in Pickwick, TN.
Have you woken this morning with a hunger? Are you craving something to the point you are willing to go the extra mile to get it? Can you smell the aroma in the air? Are you able to sense when you are getting closer to the source? There is nothing like having a craving and that anticipation of something coming out if the oven.
What we feed on is what we crave!!! May your day be filled with a craving for The Word of God and may it be sweet upon your lips as you take it in to feed your heart and soul. John 6:35 Jesus replied,”I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

A skilled fisherman learns the characteristics between the different species of fish. They study their habits, their diet and their habitat. Not only does a fisherman study those characteristics but they study their actions during the different seasons and during the storms. In order to become a good fisherman it requires faith, perseverance and grace in order to experience the catch and release. Another requirement of a fisherman is to stay awake at all times and to be recognize the signs in order to set the hook. Sometimes we have to change the color of our lures due to the mood of the fish and what they are hungry for. For there is only ONE bait that is guaranteed to lure them in and that is the attractant of love that gets them in the net in order for JESUS to bring them in…amen
Matthew 4 “”Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”
