Now when he had ceased speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch. Luke 5:4
We all heard about Jesus, but what’s it going to take for you to truly believe in him? Why do we have such a hard time with faith? Jesus was teaching to Peter and others but could tell they weren’t getting it either, so he decided I’ll show you who I am
And Simon answering said unto him, Teacher, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at your word I will let down the net. Luke 5:5
Peter was a professional fisherman so he probably was a little annoyed at Jesus request, but out of respect he did it anyway. Do we feel this way sometimes when God is calling us to do something? We get settled in our own ways but need to remember Gods ways are higher.
When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. Luke 5:8
Peter witnessed the miracle and knew immediately he was in the presence of God. Peters response was correct as he immediately asked for forgiveness as he knew the holiness of Jesus. What would your reaction be if you were face to face with Jesus?
And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from now on you shall catch men. Luke 5:10
Jesus showed kindness and mercy to Peter and told him he was going to be one of his disciples! We need to remember we don’t choose God, God has chosen us. Allow God to work wonders in your life today , let Jesus make you also a Fisher of Men Amen
