Rise Up and Step Out - January 29, 2021

Peter discovered the wonder of God’s second chance. One day Jesus preached from Peter’s boat, then he told Peter to take him fishing. The apostle-to-be had no interest. He was tired; he had fished all night. He was discouraged; he had caught nothing. He was dubious; what did Jesus know about catching fish? But Jesus insisted, and Peter relented. “At your word I will let down the net” (Luke 5:5).

This was a moment of truth for Peter. He was saying, “I will begin again, your way.” And when he did, the catch of fish was so great the boat nearly sank. Sometimes we just need to begin again with Christ in the boat. Don’t miss your opportunity by inaction. It’s time to rise up and step out. God has not forgotten you. Keep your head up — you never know what good awaits you.
