Leave everything else behind!

5:11 Luke “So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.” (NIV)

Peter and the other fishermen knew that this Jesus was someone that they must follow. They left EVERYTHING and began to follow Him. That is sacrifice. That is commitment. That is being a follower of Jesus. They KNEW it was the right decision. They KNEW He could care for them… even if they did not know HOW. That is faith… trusting in God for all aspects of your life… now and eternally!

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!
