"The way we view eternity will affect the way we live in the present."
Chances are you clicked on this fish symbol because of one of two reasons. One, you already know what it represents, or two, you've seen it on the back of a car or on a hat and have always wondered what it meant. In short, it means that I am a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.
According to tradition, ancient Christians, during their persecution by the Roman Empire in the first few centuries after Christ, used the fish symbol to mark meeting places and tombs, or to distinguish friends from foes. According to one ancient story, when a Christian met a stranger on the road, the Christian sometimes drew one arc of the simple fish outline in the dirt. If the stranger drew the other arc, both believers knew they were in good company. This symbol has continued to be used in the present day to identify Christians.
Jon is a firm believer that we are all made up of three parts, our mind, our body and our soul. Too often people focus on the first two, the mind and the body, and neglect the soul. So much time is devoted to earning degrees and seeing how many initials you can put after your name. Likewise, so much time is devoted to exercising and eating right so we can have the perfect body and live a long life. Don't misunderstand, these are important to having a vibrant and healthy life, but life is incomplete when the soul is not addressed. The feeling of unsatisfaction will always linger and the thirst for something more will remain until you address this area of your life.
Addressing the soul does not mean "finding religion" nor is it satisfied by simply going to church here and there. It is about having a personal relationship with God, who loves you and sent His Son for you. If you would like to know more, or if you have some questions, Jon is always free to chat with you about this subject.
