"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." John 21:6
Can you imagine what these fishermen were thinking!?
If it was me, I would be thinking..."But Jesus! Our net is already on THIS side of the boat! It takes SO much time and effort to move the net! Can't You just make the fish jump into the net on THIS side of the boat!?"
But Jesus called them to obedience.
"That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest OBEY His voice..." Deuteronomy 30:20
Jesus wants us to trust Him no matter what He asks. It may sound like a crazy request... but He knows the larger picture.
Jesus asked them to act out their faith in Him.
James 2:17 NIV "In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
Woah!! DEAD! Christ wants ACTION!!!
What is Christ asking YOU to DO today?
