Back to Basics

It is interesting that at the beginning of ' when He first called His disciples, they had been fishing all night but had caught nothing. Then he told them to go back out and fish again. They took the risk, and they caught more fish than their boat could hold. For the next three years, they followed and walked with Him, learning what it means to fish for people instead.  

After was crucified and had risen from the grave, He told them through Mary to meet Him in Galilee, where they had first met him. While for Him there, they must have had some time on their hands and didn't know what else to do, so they went back to basics. They went fishing. However, they caught nothing. Then, the next morning, Jesus called out from the shore, telling them to cast their net on the boat's other side. They took the risk, and before long, they knew exactly who it was onshore.  

Today do you hear Jesus calling you? Although Jesus already had His own fish on the fire on the seashore, He invited His disciples to bring some of their fish too. He also invites you during this new year, to bring what you have, so that we can join with Him in the work of His kingdom.  

Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” — 21:10  

Let's Pray  

Yahweh, thank you for your and favour. Father, please guide us to listen to you and to you to provide all we need and more. Lord, help us to use what you have given to us this new year to share your love with all those we come in contact with. In Christ name, Amen.
