Religion - Christian Life - Inspirational
I just finished a book titled, "The Fourth Fisherman" by Joe Kissack. I was not familiar with the story of the three Mexican fishermen lost at sea and the sub title of the book grabbed my attention. As I made my way through the book the story of the fishermen, while extremely interesting, was not what kept me reading. I was more interested in the author's candid telling of the story of his life. How all that he had been through; difficult family, poor choices, substance abuse, etc, had led him to find Christ.
“The Fourth Fisherman” is a great reminder of how God uses every circumstance in our lives to reveal Himself to us. We continually look to other things to fill us. Hobbies, career, drugs, etc may fill us for a while. However, lasting fulfillment can never come from worldly things because those worldly things were never meant to fill us in the first place. Only a relationship with God the Creator of the universe can bring us lasting fulfillment and joy. I recommend reading “The Fourth Fisherman” if for no other reason, to see how God uses a variety of circumstances to draw others to Him.
