Prepare for a catch!

5:04 Luke “When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."” (NIV)

Jesus was teaching near the shore but as the people crowded around Him, he stepped into a boat to finish His teaching. When He was done, He spoke to Simon Peter and asked Him to push out into deep waters and to put down His nets. Jesus often asks us to do things we don’t understand…even going into deep waters… He is with us. So, today, don’t be afraid to put out you nets (to your social network) and help bring in new believers.

Keep spreading it…God’s Word!

4:37 Luke “And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding area.” (NIV)

Jesus just spoke the Word and the demons fled. People were amazed at His power and authority. They saw the miracles. They knew it was true. They told many others. Word spread… quickly. This was something ‘new’. It was unlike what they had seen before. It is still true. It is still amazing. It is still available to everyone… let them know the Good News… today!

Jesus is the Bread of Life!

4:04 Luke “Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone.’” “ (NIV)

Jesus will face three temptations from Satan while He is in the desert. The first one is hunger. Jesus had fasted for 40 days… so He was extremely hungry. Satan didn’t just bring Him bread… no, Satan wanted Him to change the stones into bread. Jesus quoted from scriptures. Later, Jesus would identify Himself as ‘the Bread of Life’. Physical hunger returns within hours or days. Spiritual hunger can be satisfied by Jesus… and it can last forever.
