DEVO 03.20.24


DEVO. 03.20.24

”And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear!“ (Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

)

- Have you ever worked really hard at something and produced nothing?

- Have you ever felt like giving up and said, “what’s the use?”

- In Luke 5, the disciples had been fishing all night and didn’t catch a thing!

- They produced nothing!

- They were worn out and tired.

- Peter knew fishing. Fishing was his thing!

- He definitely knew better than this Rabi!

- Then Jesus says, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.”(verse 4)

- ‭‭At this point, Peter calls him, “Master”

- Master means, “Leader or Boss”

- Peter says, “But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.”

- He is “Master” and He will obey his word or follow His instructions.

- Then, when He followed the Master’s instructions, verse 6 says, “this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear!“

- ‭”When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m such a sinful man.” (Verse 8‬)

- He realizes his sinfulness and Jesus’ Holiness.

- He calls Him Lord.

- Lord, means more than Master. It means Supreme Master.

- Lord means “owner of all”. In other words, you have a right to all of me and everything that I do.

- Just a word from Jesus made this happen.

- He realized that the Holiness of Jesus changes everything!

- Everything from his spiritual condition to vocation of catching fish!

- The Word, gave a word and when Simon obeyed the word from the Word, it changed everything.

- So today, instead of working harder in your own strength, slow down, listen closely and get a “word” from the “Word”

- Give every part of everything you do to your Lord.

- Go wherever He directs you to go and do whatever He tells you to do.

- You may be amazed at the results!

- Have a good Wednesday!
