“Fisher of Men” with Christ Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy – Wednesday 25 February 2015


And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.


6 | Matthew 4:18–20

The following letter from our Leader to the First Reader of one of our churches we have gained permission to give our readers that all may share its blessing.—”Editor.

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., February 2, 1900.

Beloved Student:—Christ is meekness and Truth enthroned. Put on the robes of Christ and you will be “lifted up and will draw all men unto you.”

The little fishes in my fountain must have felt me when I stood silently beside it, for they came out in orderly line to the rim where I stood. Then I fed these sweet little thoughts that, unfearing me, sought their food of me.

God has called you to be a fisher of men. It is not a stern but a loving look that calls forth mankind to receive your bestowal; not so much eloquence as tender persuasion that takes away their fear, and it is Love alone that feeds them.

Do you come to your little flock so filled with divine food that you cast your bread upon the waters? Then be sure that after many, or a few days, it will return to you.

The little that I have done, has all been done through love, self-forgetful, patient, unfaltering tenderness.

With love, Mother,

    Ah, if but the entire Chsitian world could but read this message, it would lift up so many people, putting on the robe of Christ, that we would no longer feel any lack of anything!
