Sending Out

01 Jun

Bloch-Sermon on the MountI’m not ready to hear another story.

I’m still hanging out on that beach eating up the fish that Jesus cooked.

Just give me a few seconds.

I’ll have it all gulped down.

Oh alright, I’ll listen.

***

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus told them to go. When they saw Him they worshiped him; but some doubted.

***

I bet if Jesus had cooked up another batch of fish they wouldn’t have doubted.

I am listening.

***

Then Jesus came to them and said, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”

***

Didn’t a lot of people have trouble reading back then?

How would they know Jesus wasn’t making everything up?

They did?

They told stories like you tell me?

And I thought I was special.

Yes, I’m listening.

***

Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

***

If they’re going to preach to the dog nations I hope they’ll explain what those big words mean.

Or maybe they don’t have to.

Us dogs never sin.

We just do mischief.

***

Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

***

If Jesus is with me to the end of the age I’ll for sure make disciples and baptize them.

Baptizing is kind of like swimming, isn’t it?

    If baptising was like swimming whee’d be rather scared! Perhaps we could just stand under the waterbottle? Would that work?

    Yes, Bongo it is… maybe it’s time for your puddle to reappear!!!! You are such a good student! And of course, you do know what it means to be with Him always, don’t you? …………. [a 4 letter word] :-)

      Marina, I haven’t seen my puddle in a very long time. Maybe Jesus can bring it back for me – full of fish. Because I know He loves me.

    Swimming with the fishies – somehow I don’t think that’s what Jesus was talking about. ;)

      FleaByte, I’m so disappointed because swimming with the fishies sounds like the best thing ever.

      Kevin, I would love to teach you how to swim. It’s one of my favorite things to do, but I don’t get to do it very often.

      Little Binky, come on over. We’ll have a fish feast. We might have to let Scratchy join us. He loves fish too – but Gizmo doesn’t care about it.
