Last Night by the sea of Galilee

image

Our last morning in Tiberias I got up just after the sunrise and was sitting by the area of the baptisms and was imagining fishermen out on the sea, getting to enjoy the sunrise every morning. Then I thought of Jesus in John 21 maybe even cooking for the disciples not too far away from where I sat and read John 21, reveling in being so close to where many stories in the Gospels happened.

Today was Even More Amazing

image

Didn’t think yesterday could be topped as we witnessed several baptisms in Sea of Galilee, followed by a beautiful rainbow appearing out of nowhere. 

But today was even more amazing. At the place where Jesus preached the “Sermon on the Mount”, Chuck Swindoll shared an inspiring message on how the first 4 beatitudes related to God (vertical portion of the Cross) & the latter 4 related to ourselves & others (horizontal portion of Cross). To top this, we then had a sunset service on The Sea of Galilee with Chuck delivering another heartwarming message about letting go of things outside of our control & turning them over to The Lord.  

Below is the King David boat carrying the Insight For Living Crew. With all 4 IFL boats meeting in the middle of the Sea of Galilee tonight, we tied all the boats together, enjoyed spiritual music & fellowship, listened to Chuck’s message, & ended with a breath-taking sunset.

A 2000 Year Old Boat

It may be a boat, but it has an extraordinary story. It was a boat like this from which Peter cast his nets, a boat like this where Jesus sat with his disciples, a boat like this that carried the messengers of the Good News.

Baptism and Rainbow at the Sea of Galilee

image

We were watching people get baptized in the Sea of Galilee, and God provided a beautiful rainbow as the baptism was going on.

A song came to mind and the words go like this:

When there’s a rainbow in the sky;
The clouds that frown go smiling by.
Tis a promise written there of our Father’s love and care;
When there’s a rainbow in the sky.

How fitting for God to give us a sign that He cares for us.
