Day 85, March 26, Luke 5

click here for today's reading

First off, sorry I didn't get this posted sooner... I was so tired last night I just didn't think about it sorry!

And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."
And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets."
And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking.

I love this passage because of Simon's response... "Master we've been doing this all night but because you say so we'll do it." How many times do we feel like God is telling us to do something and we are like "do I have to..." but when we listen, we see a lot of fish!

  1. Luke 5
    1 One day Jesus was standing by the Sea of Galilee. The people crowded around him as they listened to God’s word.

    Calling of the First Disciples
    10-11 James and John, who were Zebedee’s sons and Simon’s partners, were also amazed. Jesus told Simon, “Don’t be afraid. From now on you will catch people instead of fish.” Simon and his partners brought the boats to shore, left everything, and followed Jesus.

    21-24 The scribes and the Pharisees thought, “Who is this man? He’s dishonoring God! Who besides God can forgive sins?” Jesus knew what they were thinking. So he said to them, “What are you thinking? Is it easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” Then he said to the paralyzed man, “Get up, pick up your stretcher, and go home.”

    Jesus Chooses Levi [Matthew] to Be a Disciple
    27-28 After that, Jesus left. He saw a tax collector named Levi sitting in a tax office. Jesus said to him, “Follow me!” So Levi got up, left everything, and followed him.

    30-32 The Pharisees and their scribes complained to Jesus’ disciples. They asked, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus answered them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor; those who are sick do. I’ve come to call sinners to change the way they think and act, not to call people who think they don’t have any flaws.”
