Several of the insights that he pulled out of this passage were rich! But, his main idea was what I thought was so relevant!
After Simon Peter and the guys had fished all night and caught nothing, Jesus show up and demands that they go back out again with Him. They were sure that this would yield nothing, but they yielded to Jesus anyway. As a result, they caught a ridiculous amount of fish. So much that it was breaking their nets and sinking their boats.
So, what's the point?
Do it again!!!
Lord, I have tried to fix my marriage! Maybe you need to do it again!
God, I have applied for that job and 1o others. Maybe you need to do it again!
Jesus, I attempted that idea before. Maybe you need to do it again!
Father, I tried to go back to school before. Maybe you need to do it again!
God, I already made the effort to heal that broken relationship. Maybe you need to do it again!
You may think you are the expert on fishing, marriage or your life, but you are not! If God says do it again, you may want to do it again....regardless of your knee-jerk excuse.
You may know what Jesus DID! But you DO NOT know what Jesus WILL DO!
Do it again!
