Luke 5:5-6 (NIV) (Focus verse 5)
Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
Here is the lesson: “Obedience brings results in place of failure.” How many times have we worked hard with no results? How many times have we done our best only to come up short? How easily does failure at something become a measuring stick for worth? These disciples were no novices. They were skilled fishermen who had “worked hard all night” at their craft. Their obedience to Christ’s word brought results. Walk in obedience to Christ.
