Life Letters


One soul is worth more than the whole world. Am I that soul?

October 1, 2017

Mark 8:34-38

Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”


There is one thing that should matter to us who are saved and know God’s grace; that is, inviting souls to the King’s Banqueting Table. I love fishing for these souls, especially those that have eluded the net of salvation so far. I found some unusual places to go fishing and am using some unusual bait. May this crazy bait dangle in front of those big whoppers during their crisis of conscience moment when their lives are open to being redirected.

Jesus went out of His way to find and save this critter. I am now paying that grace forward by posting these words and pictures on our web site. Check out the unusual way He let this writer know that he was lost, found, loved and forgiven. Jesus surely went out of His way for me. Read: Cloud of Guilt Gone!

Here are two ways that I have been fishing for souls. You will notice in the picture that the fisherman is sitting on what I call a “rock trout.” The rock was originally on the banks of the San Juan River that flows through the town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. We harvested some of these rocks and brought them home. Next, we sandblasted a twelve inch Jesus fish into the rock. Then we took some of the rocks back to the river and placed them where fishermen might find them. We never learned how many were found or if an angler was smitten by the power and presence of Jesus, but we did what we were prompted to do. Following those unusual promptings pays great heavenly dividends. An abundance of joy is one of them.

Another favorite place I like to go fishing for souls is at our mailbox. Here is a picture of it. Our box is just up the street and one of 144 other boxes. Lots of people go to their mailbox every day. We don’t know if anyone has focused on the rock trout on our mailbox. There is no way we can control that. We just do what the Holy Spirit prompts us to do.

Next to our mailbox are two empty boxes for packages. For years the doors to those boxes have been missing. The boxes have been unused by the post office and just collected trash. I cleaned and claimed the top box and am using it for Jesus’ bulletin board. From time to time I rotate the pictures or words in the back of the box. It is protected from the rain, snow and sun. The right-hand picture shows what is on Jesus’ bulletin board at the moment. The prints are there for the taking and so are the blue Frisbees. Click on the story: Frisbees for Jesus

The notes read: “Take a penny – Leave a penny.”

We like to call our web site our cyberspace bulletin board and spiritual pharmacy. It’s loaded with stories that address our fragile and vulnerable human condition. We hope you will visit us there and get acquainted with Peter and Rebekah and their Savior and Lord. And then put a letter in their mailbox. That would make their day.
