TOPIC: WHEN JESUS COMES ON BOARD
TEXT: LUKE 5:3 “Then he got into one of the Boats,which was simon’s, and ask him to put out a Little from the Land.And he sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat…”
One day Jesus ‘…saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats…belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore….. When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything…..(vs 2-6 NIV).
Are you sitting today where Peter sat? Your outlook is bleak, your nets are empty, you’ve tried everything you know and you’re ready to give up? Have you reach a place of not expecting anything good or experienced too many disappointments and you’re afraid to dream, reach, stretch, or broaden your horizons. Jesus knows how hard you’ve tried and today He’s inviting you to try again—this time with Him(His underserved Favor). The Lord of new beginning wants to come on board. If you let Him, He will show you what to do. Now, what He says may not initially make sense to you. But if you’re willing to respond like Peter—‘I will’—you’re on the threshold of a miracle—the grace of God. Receive His love afresh without your ego and your five senses and tell Him Lord; Lead, guild and direct me on what to do, and where to go,and watch how your situation changes. (READ Rev.3:20-21). “Behold I stand at the Door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the doors, I will come in to Him and dine with Him, and He with Me. To him who overcome I will grant to sit with Me on My Throne,as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His Throne.
