Daily Reading – 1 Chronicles 21-23 / John 21
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Jesus was crucified, placed in a tomb, rose from the dead, yet the disciples went back fishing. That’s what they did before and it was familiar to them. Then Jesus shows up and asks, “are you catching anything?” Not knowing it was Jesus they yell back, “No!” He says, “Cast on the right side of the ship.” They did and caught a net full. They immediately realized, it was Jesus. Why? Well that story is familiar. In Luke 5, when they first met Jesus He told them where to fish and they caught a boatload. Here He said, do it again.
When Jesus tells us to fish for souls, we ought to listen. Just because we didn’t win someone one time, maybe Jesus is just saying, Do it again.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Are you still fishing for men as Jesus said to do?
