They: Ordinary, yet remarkable

They

They were ordinary, unschooled fellows.
They possessed no notable merit, except,
They had been fishermen. Yet,
They had been with Jesus.
They accomplished the remarkable.
They dumbfounded their critics.
They spoke with authority.
They became fishers of men, because
They had been with Jesus.
They serve as an encouragement to me.
They were simple men who had been with Jesus.
They can include me, if I have been with Jesus.
