Thinking about Peter in the bible.
Remember the first time he met Jesus?
Peter had just came in from fishing and caught nothing. Just imagine Peter where he was at in life he had heard all these prophets and they would tell him things would get better but he wanted to see the miracle now. He had nets he had boats and this is what he knew.
We all like the comfortable we all like familiar. We all have nets that hold us back from serving God, it might be past failures, past sins that haunt us, the job we make too much money to leave. Whatever the nets might be we need to lay them down and follow Jesus.
Jesus said to Peter…
Sounded crazy to Peter but he did it. And see look what happened? Peter, though a rough man that spoke how he felt, was used mightily by God.
Then Peter said…
So in the present time is now!!! Lay down your nets and follow Jesus and he will make you a fisher of men. Laying down any nets that hinder my walk with God.
