COIN IN FISH MOUTH STORY
JESUS MIRACLE PURPOSE

Let us begin, shall we? When you saw the title of this story, it probably made you wonder, Why in the world would there be a coin in the mouth of a fish? Well, youíre about to find out, but first letís review where we left off.

We have the twelve apostles following Jesus, ministering, healing in His name, and learning the Gospel. They realize He's the Messiah, and theyíre expecting that any time now, He'll rule as King, the Romans will be history, and all will live happily ever after.

There is one puzzling thing though. Jesus has been telling them lately that His destiny is with death, and then He will rise after three days. Some things are hard to understand, and even harder to believe, and this was one of those things.

Okay, now Jesus and the Apostles went to Capernaum from Galilee and the officials that collected tribute money came to Peter and asked him, Doesnít your Master pay tribute? What does tribute mean? Letís look it up, shall we?

It is something given or contributed voluntarily as due or deserved: a gift or service showing respect, gratitude, or affection. It is a payment by one ruler or nation to another in acknowledgment of submission to obtain protection or to purchase peace an excessive tax, rental, or tariff imposed by a government, sovereign, lord, or landlord an exorbitant charge levied by a person or group having the power of coercion.

So, letís get this straight. Israel didnít want to be under Roman rule, had to pay tribute, to add insult to injury. All of this makes it understandable why people back in Biblical times looked at tax collectors with a lifted eyebrow doesnít it? Maybe itís the words excessive and exorbitant that sorta makes it all feel unfair too. One thing's for sure, they didnít like it.

Hereís a funny thing to consider. This Jesus Miracle of the Coin in fish mouth is only included in the book of Matthew and Matthew was a tax collector before He followed Jesus! You have got to love the Lord's sense of humor.


WHY WAS COIN IN FISH MOUTH
JESUS MIRACLE FOR PETER

At any rate, let's get back to our coin in fish mouth story. They asked Peter if Jesus paid tribute. (Think of the audacity of this ... really. They were asking Peter if the Son of God paid taxes!) Peter said, Yes. And when he went into the house, Jesus stopped Peter and said, What do you think Simon? Who do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute from? From their own children, or from strangers? Peter answered Him, From strangers. Then Jesus said, Then the children are free. (More humble humor here ... the kings of earth collect taxes from strangers, yet they are requiring tribute from the King of kings, Honestly.)

Then Jesus said to Peter, Nevertheless, so we donít offend them, go to the sea, and cast a hook, then take the first fish that comes up. When youíve opened his mouth, youíll find a piece of money. Take it and give it to them for me and you.

Is that just the coolest thing, or what? I don't know about you, but I'd have a hard time NOT believing in Jesus after all the things Heíd done. Coincidence is a joke when you consider all the miracles He did. What are the odds that Peter would go to the sea of Galilee, which is about 20 miles long and 12 miles wide, and catch the one fish in the entire sea that had money in it's mouth? Itís just amazing!

How does this little story apply to our lives today? Have you ever needed something, and you thought it was just impossible that you would get it? And then by some miracle, it was obtainable?! Peter certainly didnít have any money to pay tribute with. Heíd been workiní for Jesus for quite some time now and there was no money involved in that.

Yet the Lord did provide.


COIN IN FISH MOUTH FAITH
BRINGING FORTH JESUS MIRACLE

God will provide coin in fish mouth blessings for you too through a Jesus Miracle. Pray for them. You wonít need a fishing rod or a tackle box or bait. Just a sincere prayer asking your Holy Father to provide what you need. Thatís not to say that it won't take any effort at all on your part. You may have to work for it. Your fish may come in the form of overtime that wouldnít normally be available to you. It may come from winning a prize.

It may come as a promotion. It may come as a gift. It may come as an unexpected tax refund (ha ha). You just never know, but thereís some things that you won't want to forget about fish mouth blessings. Don't forget to thank your Heavenly Father for them and donít take advantage of them or take them for granted.

Another thing that you may want to consider is . . . what if youíre the fish! If you give a gift to someone, youíre in for a blessing yourself, because charity removes a multitude of sins. Is it coincidence that Peter wrote that in
1 Peter 4:8?

There are things about charity that are important to know, too. Suppose you give someone a gift, it could be a homeless person, a needy family, a child, a relative, etc. Remember, not to give gifts so other people see you. Keep it a secret, donít tell anyone or the admiration of whoever knows about your gift is all the reward you get, (Matthew 6:1-2) ... Of course, all gifts arenít given anonymously, but donít seek continual gratitude from the recipient of your gift. You may not get the blessing FROM GOD that you would have gotten, if you seek earthly reward. Be thankful that God worked through you and allowed you the opportunity to pass on His blessing and be blessed. It may be YOU that God used as the fish.

Is there someone in your life who voluntarily helps you out a lot, and you feel like you owe them? Is there someone who you voluntarily help out a lot? If we all tried to pay one another back for all of the charity (love) that weíve given and received, minute for minute and penny for penny, why would God need to bestow His blessings? We should think more about accepting the blessings that we receive through other people as His gift to us.

Do you think God wants you to pay Him back for the blessings He gives you? If you give someone a birthday present, do you expect them to give you a gift in return, or payment for it? Of course not, you would be insulted. These are some great things to think about.


COIN IN FISH MOUTH SUMMARY
JESUS MIRACLE CONCLUSION

To sum it all up, you see, whether you get a gift, or whether you give a gift, you are blessed. Whether you pay it back, or pay it forward, is something to pray to God about and with His hand, you can keep the gifts coming and going through your whole life and the lives of others.
